It also gives teachers the opportunity, to gauge her student's progress in depth and make changes whenever and wherever required, to ensure the student gets the maximum out of this course. Since, long term courses are detailed, students get the advantage of learning intricate details about this art form.

Question
How much time should a student enrolling for this course practice everyday?
Answer
This course will require practice time outside of lessons. Time spent practicing may vary from 15 minutes per day to an hour, depending on a student’s level of interest. Students who wish to become professional musicians will need more hours of practice per day using a different set of exercises and materials than students who are seeking to learn music as a hobby. Detailed structure of practice for each student will be discussed and explained during class.
Question
What if a student is unable to attend an upcoming class?
