I'm making some new practice guideline documents for my students and the first one is already up on "For Chie's Students" page. Look for "How to Learn a New Piece" doc. It's a good guideline and I expect my students to learn a new piece to certain extent by the first lesson of each piece.
I'm planning on making a practice guideline for Suzuki pieces as well and I'm sure I will be asking for student models for many more pieces. If you want to be one, let me know!
