MAINTENANCE REHEARSAL

Is the theory that by rehearsing and repeating individual items, they will remain fresh in your short-term memory which will then move into the long-term memory stores as implied by the Working Memory Model.

MAINTENANCE REHEARSAL: "By rehearsing an action or skills such as playing an instrument repeatedly, the individual can only improve, this is the understanding of the maintenance rehearsal concept."
