Practicing should be more than just logging butt-in-seat time. Students need guidance to understand their goals and practice strategies. Opportunities to reflect on their progress are key to musical growth. This practice log does away with traditional minutes-based grading and allows students to plan and perform their own practice sessions. Directions, suggested strategies, and grading system are all included. This practice log has been used successfully for multiple years in a middle school beginning band setting.
