I recently read that as the founder of the Talent Education Movement, Suzuki did believe that a parent should always buy the best instrument that he can possibly afford, with the belief that a quality instrument impacts a student’s enjoyment of his musical study.
At his piano lesson, the student is taught to listen carefully to his music and play with a beautiful sound. This is much of what makes it a rewarding and highly valued life experience. If he goes home, and the instrument makes it difficult to achieve these goals, he can become frustrated and discouraged in his practice, and at future lessons.
Find a consistent practice time. All humans relate to routine, and practice can become just like doing homework, brushing your teeth, bedtime, and eating properly. What other things are in your daily routine that are nonnegotiable? Handle piano practice in the same way.
Also, set a specific goal for each practice session. Rather than just “putting in time,” you can help by making a “do-list” for each practice session. Perhaps make at least one session a week a performing session for any available listener(s). This may motivate students to work harder during the regular practice sessions.

A piano studio introduces the musician, her teaching methods, and studio policies. Blog articles and external music links encompass an array of music topics keeping the visitor on the site and encouraging them to return. Blog articles and links are updated periodically (the term semi-static site describes this best).
Site statistics show that visitors spend the most time reading the short, but highly informative front page content and articles, which add credibility to the business and potentially increases client interest. Of course, piano lesson information and biography are also visited regularly.
I try to reflect the distinct needs of each business. Easy access to site key information and logical organization of key topics reflect the personality of your business. Using the WordPress CMS, I built and customized this site, adding a credit card payment feature that increased sales and simplifies the payment process.
