Practicing Requirements

  • Practicing Guidelines: 

    1. Students should practice a minimum total of 70 minutes each week, in order to satisfactorily complete the weekly assignment, as well as improve their skills and knowledge of each assignment.  It is better to “break up” practice time consistently throughout the week (at their discretion), rather than to “lump” it into one or two days.
    2. Each line of the practice chart has a box for the lesson date, each day of the week, weekly total, parent signature, and weekly assignment.  The students should write the number of minutes they practice each day.  Before each lesson, please total the minutes for the week and sign in the signature box.
    3. Set up your child's space for success:
    * Use a music stand
    * Find a quiet space free from distractions.
    * Establish a routine

     

    Here is an example of how the chart should be completed each week:
