I can play really well at home, but then I can’t do it in front of you, how come? Is that because I am nervous?

No, it’s not because you’re nervous. Some students say that, but actually that is not the real case. What really happens is; If you practice at home and make some mistakes, nobody catches you, but if you make a mistake in front of us, we can hear it and see it straightaway.

The most common mistakes that our students make is that they don’t give themselves enough time to think about what they are doing and practice too fast.

Remember….! If you practice too fast, you won’t have enough time to think about what you are doing, that’s why it is easier to make mistakes and you will progress very slow, you could get frustrated and waste time. But, if you practice slow, you will have more time to think about it and you will be able to avoid making too many mistakes and you will progress faster and have more fun.

If you want to be able to play faster, you must be able to do it slow and right first and then increase the speed gradually. Don’t forget that if you play fast, you would need to concentrate more and think faster.
