Technique, tone, and note reading are really important and I like to incorporate those lessons into something the student is really interested in. The worst thing in the world is for the student to become "burnt out." If they are not progressing as fast as they are capable of, I change up the regiment. There is no universal practice plan. It has to be adjusted and tailored to fit each student's needs. When that is recognized, the student will benefit the most!
