This is a basic foundation for practice to follow...this will help you in formulating your practice process, for faster progress.

Practicing properly will get you the proper results.. It is essential that you set up a system of practicing for yourself...don't practice the same things everyday...break up your practice sessions to work on different skills..ex.. tone development, hand techniques, rudiments, etc....practice time can be from one hour to 3 or 4 hours of practice...
