The Piano Student's Guide to Effective Practicing by Nancy O'Neill Breth

(Educational Piano Library). Students are genuinely surprised when things go wrong in a lesson. They don't realize that they only half-listen while practicing. When they do notice a problem, they simply play the passage over and over (cementing in the mistakes) and hope for the best. That's what most students call practicing. The Piano Student's Guide to Effective Practicing shows the student how to save time and build good practice habits. It helps the student solve specific problems with 58 concise practice tips clearly-explained drills and tactics for mastering challenging passages. Printed on heavy-coated stock for durability, the Guide is designed to be kept on the music desk for quick reference by the student when problems occur in daily practice. Practice tips are categorized to address issues of accuracy, balance, clarity, continuity, coordination, comfort, evenness, expression, fingering, rhythm and speed. The tips work for students at all stages and ages, including adults!

my bare feet grip the ground. I grip the hilt on my sword and pulled it out swiftly stabbing goblins in the head. my feets wish the goblins face as I walked along the path. my bloodshot eyes flicked around looking for any sign of danger. as I made my way to make camp I saw to death fairies. " get out of my camp you dust bags " they didn't budge. so I took 2 pieces of bark and squashed them in between. I'm ruthless I know " but death faries have their chance they'll kill you" as I was making my dinner I heard a noise in a tree. I held my gun backwards and shout at the tree six times. the leaves rustled I know I shouldn't have but I did it anyway I turned around. right at the moment something jumped on me pinning me down to the ground. I hit the ground hard and everything went black.
