General suggestions
(time may vary according to a student's circumstances-particularly on a given day)

The issue should not be "how long" but "how" we practice..."the method"

These recommendations are for thoughtful, well-coordinated practice. It is always more meaningful to practice less in a concentrated but free and easy fashion. Do not attempt to "stamp a time card" when practicing. Keep your musical goals foremost. Strive to accomplish these instead of watching the clock. Do not practice when you are mentally or physically fatigued. If you practice in this fashion, you will do more harm than good by forming and reinforcing negative habits. Pracitcing well involves staying out of this territory.

The practice should be divided in to small equal units.
