Regular home practice plays an important role in learning how to play an instrument. Students are able to focus on things that they might be having difficulty with and improve upon their individual playing before coming together as a group. Without regular home practice, it is easy for a student to fall behind in rehearsals. If you find that you are struggling with your instrument or music, please do not hesitate to see Mrs. Johnson for extra help.
