Practice Chart | ‘My Goal’ Countdown!

how to help students practice, practice chart, piano practice, music practice

Ever wished that your music students would notice their music competition or exam getting closer, and feel a more urgent need to practice and prepare?

Well these basic Countdown Charts may help them to focus, pick up their music practice efforts, and use the last 5 to 10 weeks more wisely!  This set has not one practice chart… but SIX different practice charts all focusing on counting down to their next music goal!

  • A simple practice chart set that allows them to cross off one square each day and ‘feel’ time passing as their goal gets closer.  Consider clipping it to the front of their music book, so it can’t be missed!
  • Run a ‘Practice Competition’ to inspire everyone to get practicing – Use this simple practice chart for students to write down their practice times each day to keep a track of their efforts.
  • Choose which time frame to use – This set of practice charts ranges from 5 weeks right through to 10 weeks.

You can also write on any mini-goals they need to complete along the way to be ready in time… Scales?  Pieces? Theory? Aural skills? General knowledge?  Write it on so they can see when it’s due!  Recommended for studio music teaching.
