Practice Guide for Students, Parents and Teachers
This 16 page handbook opens with an essay on the Art of Productive Practicing covering motivation, practice environment, expectations, the practicing space, scheduling, goal setting and teacher motivation. There is an outline of the four stages of practicing to a performance. A student motivational survey can be copied for new students. There are three sample schedules of possible lesson formats, and a student practice journal outline and practice record that may be copied. This is a good book to have on hand for the interview with a new student.
