What to expect during a lesson
At the beginning of each lesson, students will be asked to play each song assigned the previous lesson for practicing that week.
Ariana will then provide feedback, pass off songs that are ready. Should any songs need additional practice, additional goals will be discussed. As songs get longer and new concepts are covered, it is often neccesary to need more then one week for each song.
As time allows, new material is then learned and new songs are assigned. As students are ready for this skill, scales are also assigned.
All songs and practice goals will be written down in a spiral notebook by the teacher for each student to take home and refer to throughout the week as they practice.
For younger students, ages 10 and under, the last 5-10 minutes of the lesson is reserved for fun learning games that reinforce concepts learned throughout lessons such as notes and rhythms.
Students are expected to practice a minimum of 4-5 times a week.
Recommended practice length by age:
- 8 and under
- 10 minutes per day
- 10-15 minutes per day
- 20-30 minutes per day
- 16 and older
- 25-30+ minutes per day
The above times are also dependent on skill level and age of student when starting lessons and do vary between each student. Please consult Ariana for a custom recommended practice time based on all of the above mentioned factors.
