Encourage students to use their music practice time effectively by using focused strategies that save time and help improve difficult passages quickly.
This product can be used in several ways. Place all the cards on a wall or bulletin board to remind students of the various practice options available or use the Practice Strategy of the Week Title Poster and introduce and work on a new strategy each week. Simply change out the strategy card each week for this option. These strategy cards work great as a companion to lessons or units on how to practice music effectively. Some modeling by the teacher or class discussion about each strategy may help students understand how to fully utilize them. Strategies work for orchestra, band, choir, piano, or guitar classrooms and studios.
