Practice Tips to use with your child:


  1. Let your expectations be known.  Your consistent message of your expectations with practice shows that you see it as important to the success of your child.
  2. Set aside a specific time for them to practice.  Students that have a designated time to practice do so with little problems.  Again, show your expectations by setting aside time.
  3. Create a practice area.  Set up a space that the student can practice comfortably with little distraction.
  4. Make sure all materials are available.  Make sure your child has all materials for correct practice.
  5. Make sure they have a designated place to put their instrument for the next day of school.
  6. Show interest in their practice.  Listen to them.  Ask them questions.  Praise them for their efforts.
  7. Call the director with practice concerns.  The band director is there to offer help with many different problems to help your child be successful in band.  Work together with the director.
  8. Stay involved and informed.  Post calendars in a place where you will not forget.  Stay aware of yearly events and assignments.


You are the most important person in your child's life.  Staying involved and working with teachers helps children more than you could know.  Taking a few steps with your child offers them the success and achievement that school offers.
