Maximizing Practice Time
SoundAdvice Feature: Michelle Graham
Hi, Ms. G here. I teach voice and piano at FAME Performing Arts and I'm here to give you a quick tip on how to make your practice time more effective.
You've done your warmup and your voice is ready. Now, pick a piece and break it down. Don't try to do the whole piece all at once and think that you're done, because that's not how we do it. Break it down into maybe four measures, then the next four measures. You make it so you're practicing small bits and getting the small bits perfect, then you move on. Then you put it all together! And that is how you effectively practice a piece.
We have a lot of fun here at FAME and we'd love for you to come on down! If you want to learn more, check out our website.
