Parents, please encourage beginning students to practice more often for short amounts of time. Practicing alone and without an audience at first can be really helpful. Setting up a practice routine/space can be very helpful. Band students have been given reminder information about caring for the instrument and doing appropriate tone development exercises. All students, posture is super important! Sometimes looking in the mirror is necessary! Putting the book and print music on a music stand leads to better posture!

Returning students may find that it is suddenly (sometimes) fun to practice and may need to share their work with the family audience. Please be supportive!
