3. What is the requirement for practicing? How much practice is enough?


For fast progress, students are required to practice daily for a minimum of 15-30 minutes. For children as young as 4, we encourage a once-daily 5-minute practice for a start. Children love to play. Any homework or anything that becomes hard has an immediate battling effect on them. But as soon as they get the hang of playing and practicing on a regular basis, the practice time can be extended to 10-minutes or more. Most students find it helpful to practice at the same time every day. Consistency and quality are very essential when practicing. As the saying goes "practice does not only makes perfect, it makes permanent."
