Practice-a-thon

Rewards: 100 Day Pizza Party & a T-shirt after 1 year (or more) of practice

We would like to invite your child to be a part of our practice marathon!

The Guidelines:

1.  You  need to practice EVERY DAY. If you miss a day, you start over.
2. If you are sick you need to practice at least 25% of your lesson time.
  1. Example: 1 hour lesson, AT LEAST 15 minutes of practice
                                  20 minute lesson, AT LEAST 5 minutes of practice
3. There will be certificates for consecutive days practiced over 25 days! (dates will vary depending on the concert date).
4. Mark the calendar on the back of your paper for everyday you practice, bring your calendar every week to your private instructor to initial.
5. Students will be presented an award on stage at the End of the Year Concert.

 In January we will plan a pizza party for any child reaching 100 days of practice. You MUST show your paper to Mrs. Vogt prior to attending the Pizza Party so we can have enough pizza for everyone.

The following school year, if a child reaches one year (or 2+ years etc.) of continuous practice, the school will have a special t-shirt for each child that qualifies!!! For two years etc. there will be a new designed t-shirt!
