    Have the right environment to practice in. No distraction if possible and access to pencils, media and a comfortable chair or area to practice in.

    • Making sure you warm up. Not just for singers but also instrumentalists.
    • Have a goal for each practice session. eg. Focus on getting technique, or intonation.
    • Be realistic and aim to what can be achieved. Yes, you will be able to play ‘Stairway to Heaven’ but not in one week!
    • Identify your weakness and then speak to your teacher in what exercises you need to perfect to be able to sing/play difficult passages
    • It is more than the actual music. Learn your capabilities, improve your tone colour develop your confidence.
    • Use pencils to write on your music. It provides reminders to sing/play a certain way.
    • Record yourself and listen back. We sometimes cringe at how we sound but that is exactly what our audience hears.
    • At the end of your practice, treat yourself to a reward.
