In order for your child to break old keyboarding habits they will need to constantly practice proper technique even when not working in this class. Therefore, it is important for you to continually encourage them to practice proper technique at all times.
Students will be expected to complete four two part lessons each week. Typically Fridays are used as a day for student's that have fallen behind to catch up and those who have not fallen behind to practice their technique. However, it is important that students work to get caught up as soon as they fall behind. Once a student falls more than one lesson behind it becomes very difficult for them to catch up.
As students are learning the keys (Unit 1 Lessons), their focus should be on technique and accuracy. Once they have learned all the keys, completed Unit 1, they will shift their focus to increasing speed without losing technique and accuracy. The key to keyboarding success is practice, practice, practice!
