The Practice "Diet"

An article published in the American String Teacher Magazine suggests students should think of practicing like a "diet" starting and ending with dessert! For example breaking down a 30-minute practice session (with a 5 minute break) might include:

5 minutes                dessert                warm-up on favorite old song
10 minutes              veggies               practice scales, etudes, or other exercises
5 break                                              e-mail, text or call a friend on the phone
10 minutes              main dish           practice solo music and/or orchestra music
5 minutes                dessert               play fun music you want to play
