Common Core Picture

Practice Time is Here!

 

ALL band students - beginning and intermediate - should be bringing their instruments home on a regular basis for practice. Beginning band students are required to practice a minimum of 60 minutes per week spread out over at least three days. Intermediate band students are required to practice a minimum of 45 minutes per week spread out over at least three days. This is a very minimal requirement, therefore students are expected to make the practice time commitment and be honest regarding their practice times. Of course, students may (& are encouraged to!) practice longer!

PARENTS: Please encourage your child to practice his/her instrument. Ask them what they are working on and take an interest in their musical experiences. Many students will be glad to “teach” you what they are learning by demonstration. Know that the sounds you are hearing at this stage in a young musician’s “career” are normal. Improvement will occur as long as (s)he is practicing! Be supportive by encouraging them to practice. Provide regular, dedicated practice time in a quite area free from distractions. After all, you are investing your time (& money!) as well in this process, and I know you want your child to be successful!
