· 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
