During these times, when do I practice? Morning, afternoon, or night?
What days of the week do I practice?
What room do I usually practice in?
How long do I practice for?
What can help me practice effectively?
What other activities (besides my instrument) do I practice during the week?
Here is Ms. Greenberg's example response below (Student responses can be shorter):
When I was in college, I usually practiced in the afternoon. This was after my morning classes but before my evening orchestra rehearsals. I now usually practice in the evening on weekdays and in the morning on weekends. I like to practice at least a little bit every day around 30 minutes but that is sometimes very challenging to do during a very busy week. I use to practice for HOURS when I was studying in high school and college! But I am trying to practice even more with the time we have at home now. When I practice, it helps me to have my phone in a different room and with all other distractive noises off such as the Alexa radio or TV. I like to practice in my living room near my piano so I can try to play on both. My husband plays some musical instruments so it is always more fun to practice together. I also like to practice dot painting! It has become a hobby of mine within the past few years. The more I practice applying paint dots, the better they turn out. I usually like to paint in the mornings when the sun is shining. Attached is a picture of one of my paintings (of course, inspired by music)
