1. I don't really have experience with this
since I don't play an instrument at all.

Little MB is learning piano and takes private lessons - her instructor is a good friend.

He says the key to it is to just keep practicing and he expects her to practice at least 20 minutes daily.

It is really obvious whether she has practiced or not.

Good luck leftymom!
