8. PRACTICE make PERFECT
- To be successful and obtain the best results from studying, you need to practice. Our institution only offers you knowledge of how to play your favorite musical instrument. For excellent skills, you need self-practice. Learning how to play music gives the skills for students. However, the rest comes from effective practicing and care of children from parents. It is said to be the first responsibility of every student to practice on a daily basis.
