The Seven Deadly Practice Sins

One of my most valued relationships is the one I have with Samantha Coates, of Blitzbooks fame. Samantha & I were at school together at the Conservatorium High School and have worked together at AMS since the early 90’s. Over that time we have discussed, trialled and sometimes perfected all manner of ideas, courses & strategies for improving music education.

We are both passionate about improving our students’ sight reading, aural skills, practice skills and enjoyment of being a musician! Sometimes it’s hard to define who came up with which idea… I guess that’s what happens when you are constantly in discussion about life, the universe, music education and everything!

Samantha recently wrote a fantastic article about PIANO PRACTICE entitled ‘The Seven Deadly Practice Sins’ for her website.

This is a must read for all parents, older students & teachers. Every one of these ‘sins’ is common – and avoiding them will revolutionise the progress of the piano student!
