For longer pieces for students, I divide the piece into sections from A to however many sections there are. Then we can vary what section we start with, eg start in the middle of piece and play to end before starting at beginning . For students who need specific practising instructions, I can suggest the number of times each section should be p!ayed and identity problem areas. However I do recommend playing the piece from beginning to end if possible at the end of a practice session otherwise it can be a bit soul destroying.
