I know it doesn’t sound like a lot but it’s true. 5 minutes of practice 5-6 days a week over the course of a few years WILL lead to great results. Length of time practicing is not as important as consistency.
Learning to play an instrument takes lots of practice and commitment.
1-3 years of lessons Beginner
3-5 years of lessons Intermediate
5-10+ years of lessons Advanced
Students have school work, sports, jobs, and many other activities. Dedicating yourself to learning an instrument takes immense concentration and continual practice. We have many incentive programs to help keep students on track. There’s no need for parents to remind students to practice.
For every 2-3 lessons (weeks) a student misses, they regress. For example, if a student takes lessons for three months and then takes a break for summer when they return to lessons the teacher will have to start over- very close to the beginning. The student will have to re-learn (motor memory) everything they worked on for the first three months. This is why continuing lessons is so important!
We want to celebrate you every step of the way. Rhapsody Rewards is our ribbon and trophy incentive program. Every 3 months or so students will receive a ribbon to celebrate their continued commitment to taking lessons. Students receive a trophy when they hit their year anniversaries.

Our e-FISH-ent practice incentive is one of the many ways we motivate students to keep practicing. The practice incentive last 3 weeks. Each week students complete a worksheet and turn it in to their teacher.
For every completed worksheet, students earn a fish to place in their baggie. All baggies are pinned to our Fish Pond wall.
Who ever has three fish in their bag by the end of the incentive will be entered into a drawing to win the Prize Bag!
