Practicing with a young instrumental student has some challenges. I use games like these with my 4-6 year old students to help them achieve better concentration skills, to improve practice quality as the students and parents practice at home, and to add fun variations to the repetition of practice.
This file includes 5 practice games that can be used with the teacher in the lesson or with parents during home practice.
- Reward good posture or behaviors.
- Provide a visible goal to reach while doing repetitions.
- Use as a tool for reviewing pieces, or to ensure all the assigned pieces are practiced.
- Create positive parent/child interactions around the instrument.

You may use these games for personal or educational use.
