      Parent – Set your child up for success. Manage, encourage positively, and keep the child organized.
      Teacher – Knowledge of subject, leadership, motivation, teach to the student’s learning style and ability.
    • Practicing at Home is…
      Reviewing the Practice Log
      They should start practicing by looking at their assignment and goals.
      This is found in the practice log.
      Mastering the Skills We are Learning
      Songs and exercises should be repeated.
      One or two songs or exercises mastered is better than five or six done poorly.
      Specific practice skills are taught in lessons.
      Practice Time Goal
      5-6 days a week – 15 – 20 minutes each day practiced
      The student should record the amount of time practiced.
    • Encouraging Your Child
      Take an Interest in your Child’s Progress
      Go through the Practice Log with your student.
      Ask them to show you what they should be working on.
      Practice Time and Preparation
      Work with your child to find a good daily practice time.
      Stress the importance of practicing for the sake of improving.
      Be Your Child’s Number 1 Fan!!!
      Be a positive encourager.
      Help lead your student to proper choices.
      Ask your child to show and explain to you what they have been working on.
      Ask them how their lesson went that day.
      Encourage them to be open and honest with their teacher.
      Give Positive, Constructive Feedback.
      I like the way your instrument sounds.
      I can really tell how you have improved.
      It is great to see you being responsible for your instrument and practicing.
      I am glad that you are enjoying being in band.
      Could you play a song for me?
