Students are expected to diligently prepare lesson assignments each week. Every part of the assignment is important. Obviously this involves spending a certain amount of time practicing, but it is the quality of the practice that is most important. The amount of time that a student should expect to practice every day depends partly on their age, level, and goals. Advice on how to practice can be found on the Resources pages. Guidance from parents can be helpful if it guides the student toward learning to solve problems for themselves.
