For Violin Students of All Ages

|Distributed practice is more effective than massed practice. That's a fancy way of saying that practicing for a period of time every day is more important than practicing for a long time at once. In other words, practice for 30 minutes every day, not 210 minutes once a week!
Miss a practice every once in a while? Don't worry! Just pick up where you left off. Miss a bunch of practices in a row? That is more of a problem. You might consider going back a week and starting back to work on something that you play really solidly. Then you can work your way back into the groove and get back to where you were before your little "vacation."
Remember, daily practice is important. A Suzuki teacher I know advises students to only practice on the days that they eat.
