‘My Bag of Practice Tricks’ – BOTH Editions

Awesome practice strategies to boost mid-week practice - Children, Teens & Adults

Do your students really know how to practice music?  Have you ever wished that they would know how to go about their music practice, without using up more valuable lesson time explaining it again? Looking to ‘gamify’ practice time?

Then this book set may be for you!  This duo Teacher’s Bundle set includes both ‘My Bag of Practice Tricks’ Books, complete with Studio Licence.

Full of helpful, accessible practice strategies gleaned from years of private music teaching.  The concise, colourful, fun, kid-friendly layout allows students to quickly get practice help to make the best use of those six days in between their music lessons!  Teachers can implement the book’s learning strategies in lessons, to support and reinforce its use at home.

With the same basic information in each book, this Bundle gives you BOTH versions:

The Children’s Edition – Bright and colourful, to encourage curiosity and exploration, AND the Older Student’s Edition – Great for teenagers and adults – text, fonts and graphics have been revised and modified to interest the older student.
