Piano Lesson: Creating an Effective Practice Regimen with Hugh Sung


Developing an effective practice regimen can be one of the most difficult facets of learning an instrument. Making decisions about what to focus on, how to maximize growth, and how to stay motivated can become incredibly difficult to navigate as your playing progresses. To make matters even more complicated, many of us often have only a small window of available time to dedicate to practice daily or even weekly, so successfully maximizing this time is paramount.


In this online piano lesson, world-renowned pianist and ArtistWorks popular piano instructor, Hugh Sung details his strategic approaches to practice to help you maximize your efforts and effectiveness when practicing. In addition to providing tips on how to narrow your focus and make consistent, incremental improvements in your playing, Hugh also delivers insights on both what to do and what not to do while practicing. Some of his methods just might surprise you.


“I’m probably the only piano teacher you’ll ever hear tell students to practice less,” Hugh explains. “ What do I mean by that? The problem with overextended practicing is that more than likely you’re going to be engraining bad habits into your playing. Your practice needs to be of high quality, not quantity.”

Focusing your attention on one unique element of your playing with each dedicated practice session is an excellent way to improve, ensure success, and minimize the perpetuation of bad habits. When practicing, it’s critical that you take things slow, and provide opportunities for self-reflection and analysis. Regardless of your instrument, it’s important for players of all skill levels to keep this in mind when sitting down to practice.


“Make your mistakes your best teachers,” Hugh explains. “Try to focus your attention on what you’re doing incorrectly and learn from your mistakes. This is where the ArtistWorks Video Exchange platform becomes so helpful.”
