Hi Felicia,Actually, there are some things you can prcictae while watching TV, like, making chord changes. You don't necessarily have to make any noise, just let your fingers of your left hand prcictae moving from one chord to another chord. Maybe you and your Mom could come up with a compromise of some sort? Like, you prcictae at a certain time every day, so she knows when it will begin and end? Or, you find a space to prcictae in your home that it quiet and private? Believe it or not, some people prcictae in bathrooms or big closets sometimes!
