Practicing at home
Make sure you are spending 5 minutes a day taking your instrument out, putting it together, and practicing what you did in lessons this week.
Teach what you did to a parent, friend, or sibling (as long as they don't hurt the instrument).
Play a short concert for your family -- even if it's just 2 notes!!!
Make up a song with the notes you know for now.
Record yourself on a phone and listen to it! Are you happy with your sound?
