Why every student should keep a practise diary
The practise diary has these fundamental assets:
1. Helps to organise your time and gives practise a structure.
2. Ensures you to achieve set goals.
3. Indicates weak areas which need more time or a different approach.
4. Helps you analyse your practising and improve the way you use the diary.
5. Gives you some idea of how long it takes you to learn a piece, helping you with time management.
6. In keeping a record of your practise you can concentrate on different aspects of your playing each day, ensuring you spread your time and repertoire equally between lessons.
7. Helps you reflect on the positive aspects of your practising technique when improvements are noticed.
