Tips for Maximizing Progress
Here are some tips to help you maximize your progress and enhance your learning experience:
Trim Your Nails - Keep your nails neatly trimmed to facilitate smooth and precise finger placement on the fretboard.
Arrive Early - Come a few minutes before the scheduled start time to settle in, tune your instrument, and prepare for the lesson.
Tune Your Instrument - Ensure your instrument is tuned before each practice session and lesson. Less time tuning allows for more time to learn.
Takes Notes! - Make sure to have a paper and pencil ready.
Stay Organized! - We recommend bringing a binder, some dividers and page protectors for all of your songs and notes.
Ask Questions - Regularly communicate with your teacher about your progress, challenges and goals.
Record Yourself - Record voice memos of songs and riffs to remember them. Learning songs you enjoy can keep you motivated.
Before Your Lesson: Pre-Class Stretching
Taking just a few minutes to stretch before class not only prevents potential strains, but it also sets a positive tone for your practice session.
Flexibility for Fingertips - Gently stretch and flex your fingers, promoting increased agility and precision when playing your instrument.
Release Tension in Strumming Arm - Loosen up your arms with gentle stretches. This enhances circulation and helps prevent stiffness and promotes smoother playing.
Unwind Your Shoulders and Neck - A few shoulder rolls and neck stretches go a long way in releasing tension built up from the day.
Activate Core Muscles - Engage your core with light stretches to maintain good posture during your class.
