PRACTICE, please!

Now is a great time to spend some hours with your instrument and making music.

Here are my best ideas for helping you move forward:
Play the old, easy, familiar pieces.
Tackle a new piece when you feel “brushed up” on technique.
Share your products with family members.
Play along with recordings of every type:
