- Take good notes during the lesson (either parent or student, depending on the age).
- Use a practice chart.
- Choose a lesson time that is convenient and not too taxing on you or your child.
- Put your violin lesson time on your calendar or set a reminder on your phone.
- Make sure the violin is tuned and in good working order (you can use a clip-on tuner even if you are not an experienced musician).
- Have the proper equipment – books, a music stand, rosin, shoulder rest (see other equipment on “Beginners-what to expect”).
- Make practice into a routine – choose a time for practice in your daily schedule.
- If you are coming directly from school, have a snack ready for your child before the lesson.
