A lot of my students are always asking me, “Why do we need to practice daily? Is that critically important for us to practice daily?”. Knowing how busy students are, that is a legitimate question. The answer is quite simple though, yes, you must practice daily. A famous Russian Pianist Anton Rubinstein had said once: “If I miss one day of practice, I can feel it, if I miss two days of practice, my friends will notice it, and if I miss three days of practice the audience will notice it”. The self discipline and determination to be the best at what you do, should be a driving force for students, and results will be very rewarding for students, their audience, and of course their parents. I would like to start the dialog with students and parents and open that discussion.
