All students have nightly homework of practice. The objective is to improve. How much practice is expected of my child? If your child practice enough to learn something new; a scale, a new note, or the ability to play through a piece we are working on in class then your child has practiced enough.
Parents of 5th grade students must sign the physical practice log each week. This log will be collected twice a quarter. More on that at our August 18th meeting.
Practice Requirements for beginners
Students in 5th grade will receive a 10 point practice grade each week. Two points will be earned for each day that the student achieves the minimum amount of time required for his/her grade level (or the equivalent amount of time). If the student decides to practice every day of the week, or the equivalent, s/he will receive a bonus point (11/10) for that week's grade.
