Practice Card Information
Research shows that a 20 to 30 minutes of daily practice is much better than sitting down one day a week and practicing for several hours. Very similar to an athlete training. The practice cards is a tool which is used to help a student monitor the amount of time they put into their instrument. The more effort the greater the reward.
Students are required to turn in one practice card per week. Practice cards are due the first two days of the week. They must be signed by a parent or guardian.
Practice cards are not required over extended holidays however extra credit is awarded for students who turn in cards after extended holidays like Spring Break and Christmas.
Beginners will begin practice cards the 2nd marking period.
