With many of us confined to our homes due to current circumstances, it does potentially make for a great opportunity to make the most of the situation by practising the piano! However, the subject of how to practise effectively is rarely taught. Much practice is unfocused and unproductive (or worse, leads to bad habits that might be hard to break in future).

To help you get the best results from your time spent practising, I’ve created a free two-week email course based on the videos from my Practice Tools video lecture series. Suitable for pianists of any level, it comprises ten lessons introducing various practice tools that will help you to:

  • Structure your practice sessions and practise efficiently
  • Learn new pieces faster and build more solid foundations
  • Develop speed using a better approach then simply increasing the metronome with each repetition
  • Improve the quality of your playing
