Requisite Practice Habits for Optimal Musical Development
A set daily routine is most productive. Set aside a time of day, everyday, and stick to that time.
Seven days a week is better than five.
Practice sessions should ideally be no less than 15 minutes. Half hours are best.
For advanced students up to an hour a day or more is recommended.
A helpful breakdown of a routine half hour practice
-Warm ups (exercises, scales, triads etc.)...10 minutes
-Songs, Pieces...15 minutes
-Free time (review, playing for fun, improvisation etc.)...5+ minutes
-Theory depends on assignment and is separate from regular practice
