·      Make sure your instrument and practice can be done away from the TV and computer and other household distractions.

·      Make sure the room is warm in winter and cool in summer

Plan to Practice: Practice will not happen if you do not set aside time each day. Try to choose a time each day that will note be interrupted for example

·      After breakfast, before school

·      After school

·      As part of your home work time

·      After dinner

Some days you may not have a block of time in which to practice so try doing micro-practice for example, 3 lots of 10 minutes practice = 30 minutes
