How can I make sure I get the most out of my music lessons?
Make sure you have a practice notebook to take down notes on the lesson. Read the teacher’s weekly instructions for practice.
One short practice every day is much better than a marathon session just before the next lesson! A practice session straight after the lesson is usually very beneficial.
Make sure you always ask if you are having a problem with something.
