To help your students become more proficient at practice here is another practice idea:
Ask students with their families to organise a practice schedule.
This makes it easier to fit in the number of practices needed.
The practice schedule runs more smoothly because it has been thought about in context with other family activities.
Practice is more likely to happen because parents are aware of the schedule during the week and will remind students of their practice time.
Students and parents will be more likely to choose a practice time when the student is not tired.
If students and parents have chosen the schedule they will be more engaged in it and invested in its success.
