"As a teacher, I believe it is important to educate the whole musician. Frequently teachers and students alike get caught up in the mechanics of playing. Be sure to occasionally step back from the instrument and look at the big picture. Regular practice is the key to success when learning a string instrument so beginners who may need a little extra practice help can use The Musicians Practice Log." - Heather Hanson, Cellist & SHAR Apprentice
