How much do I need to practice?

This is a question that all students ask when beginning piano lessons.   In my contract that all new students sign when starting lessons,  it states that the requirement is to to play each piece  two times per day.  This is for a beginning student, usually  7 or 8  years old.   As you progress through the study of music, it becomes more challenging and demands more practice time to master the musical skills.  The amount of  time should grow longer as you begin to play more advanced  music.  The rewards are very fulfilling when a student can play well.  It is a full circle, as the student practices more, they get better, and as they get better, they want to play the piano more, etc.  Let me end this post with an appropriate quote, “Piano is like life, you get out of it what you put into it”
