How to Structure a 30 Minute Practice Session
In this new series by Erin Mae Rogers Lewis, she explains that when she was a music student, no one ever really told her HOW to practice, so in this series she gives us a few suggestions for a successful 30-minute practice session. Although this new lesson is demonstrated using a mountain dulcimer, the series is applicable to hammered dulcimer players as well.
