All students are required to practice their instruments at home on a regular basis, averaging 2 hours per week. Everyone's schedules are different, so each student is responsible for making time in their own routine to meet this requirement.
Instead of practice logs, students perform weekly "check-ins" with Mrs. Grubb to show her their progress from practicing at home. Students are assigned exercises from the book, and measures from the sheet music, to practice throughout the week. These examples are put in a random drawing and the students will randomly choose 1 example to play as their "check-in." This encourages the students to practice all of the assigned material in order to be prepared.
