What Should Be Included in a Piano Practice Session?

Posted on: July 2, 2009

Every piano practice session should include:
A warm-up – time to focus the mind and start moving the fingers
Exercises – scales, Hanon, Czerny, arpeggios
Repertoire – working on chunks in a careful focused manner
Sightreading – read through a four part hymn
Theory – test yourself on key signatures, scales, terms
Reward piece – play something you know just for fun

Happy Practicing on the Piano!
