How long should my child practice every day?

Length of Practice Time

Young children, ages 4-7, may only have the attention span to practice 15 or 20 minutes a day. At about age 8, they can be expected to spend one half hour per day. Students planning on studying music in college should expect to spend 3-5 hour per day practicing. The length of practice each day is not as important as the consistency of practicing every day.
