I've been meaning to put my ideas in writing on how to practice effectively, and finally went ahead and did so in my new blog, Notes and Lines on music instruction. I think this piece is particularly important for beginning players. It's a new blog, so not yet tons of content, but I'd appreciate any thoughts on the how to practice post, and any suggestions for what to cover next.

FYI, the blog is sponsored by my music business, so you will see a small icon indicating sponsorship when you visit. If this offends you, please skip it.
