New: Online Practice Logs!

We have added a new feature to the website: online practice forms!


I know, you may be groaning, but just think:

-Have you ever wondered how much you REALLY practice in a week?

-Is there a particular skill you’d like to learn, but you’re not sure how to get started?

-Do you find practice boring, and would rather be doing something else?

The new practice log will help you with ALL these issues, and MORE:

Practice log example 1

Just select which days you practiced, and the total minutes you practiced for the WHOLE week- pretty simple! Then you’ll answer a few questions about what you enjoyed about practicing this week, what was difficult for you, etc.

The questions following will help you review your practicing behaviors: is there something that, even after practicing, you’re having trouble understanding? Do you need help with an alternative practice method? A few students will simply play the songs they like for several weeks without practicing any of the “hard stuff”, without even realizing it’s happening. This form will help you AND me form a plan for what, when, how, and why you’re practicing.

Finally, this practice sheet has a small question at the bottom, and if you answer it correctly, it will submit your form automatically (if you’ve answered all the questions which are required, as indicated by an asterisk (*) next to the question.
