    • Thoughts and Tips on Practicing
      Individual practice is at the heart of learning to play a musical instrument. Technique can be taught and demonstrated at a private lesson, and ensemble skills and musical ideas can be communicated at an orchestra rehearsal, but competency on and mastery of an instrument is accomplished only by regular dedicated individual practice sessions . Like most things in life, what you get out of your strings experience depends greatly upon what you put into it.
