Band Parent tips:
Help your students develop good practice habits by setting aside time 5 days each week for them to practice.
Have students practice 30 min each day on their practice days.
Check your student's practice record during the week to make sure that they are filling it out properly.
At the end of each week initial your student's practice record. If your student is not practicing at least the required 150 min. each week talk with them about responsibility and the importance of completing their homework.
Encourage your student to practice along with the CD that came with their book, this will help them have a better understanding of what the song sounds like and how their instrument is suppose to sound.
Doing these things for your student will help them succeed in their musical aspirations.
