Practice Makes It Easier

The phrase usually goes “Practice makes Perfect.” But we really don’t demand perfection out of our children or students. So, I have adopted the phrase from Ed Sprunger’s book (Helping Parents Practice) that “Practice makes it easier.” Makes what easier? Playing!!! If you practice your piece it will get easier and you will then get to start a new piece that you will practice and that is how we progress on an instrument.

I spend hours of my day practicing with my children and I am going to write about some of the tips and ideas to keep my kids motivated to practice. Perhaps that will help YOU with your practicing endeavors at home.
