Objectives and Policies for Percussion Studies

Music lessons should enable students to grow, explore, experiment, expand and refine their musical abilities. However, progress in anything is directly related to motivation and practice, practice, practice!

The following guidelines are suggested as a program for advancement in Percussion studies:

Beginning: 20–30 minutes a day, 5 days a week
Intermediate: 30–40 minutes a day, 5–6 days a week
Advanced: at least 60 minutes a day, 6–7 days a week

Always try to use perfect form and techniques on exercises. Remember that good practice habits build good technique.

Lesson Policies

Students must bring the following items to lessons every time:

Study Books
Completed practice log
Practice plans from previous week
