Remember you must record your practice sessions on the singing strong website to qualify. Thank you to those who have already started to do this.
How to get into a good practice routine:
Put it in the diary!
Life is so incredibly busy with so many commitments. Taking on singing lessons means finding time to practice. I suggest you take a moment to decide when will the best time be for you to practice, put those times in your diary and stick to it.
We are fortunate in some ways to always have our voice with us so we can practice almost anywhere, but setting aside specific times in a designated place where you can be free from distractions and really focus is so important.
Where should I practice?
Have a space where you are comfortable, have all the tools you need and are free of distractions.
Try to find a space where family members wont be interrupted too much, however make other members of your family aware that they need to let you practice.
How long should I practice?
It depends. If you are serious about making good progress, the more time you put in, the more progress you will make.
Start with at least 10 minutes, 5 times a week when first starting out and then gradually increase this time as necessary. Depending on perfomances and exams, you may need to practice an hour every day.
A good rule of thumb is to practice on the day after your lesson if possible. This reinforces what you have done at your lesson. Leaving it for a couple of days means you can easily forget what you have worked on.
