Students are expected to practice 5 days a week. Students will be encouraged to focus on what they’re practicing but more importantly, how they practice. The progress chart is made up of two parts:
1.Practice Goal – At the end of each orchestra class students will write down one or more practice objectives that they plan to focus on during their home practice session. To earn full credit for this portion, the student must have one practice goal recorded for each day. 2. Practice Notes - For each home practice session during the week students will record which goals they worked on and which practice strategies were utilized. To earn full credit for this portion the student must have practice goals and strategies recorded for five days of the week.
Practice Records will be checked every Monday for completion. Five days must be completed to receive a 100 (four days 90, three days 80 etc.).
