• Home practice: Provide a place and time to practice, and also make sure your student practices at home. • Evening performances: Provide transportation for your student to attend two evening performances — one in the winter and one in the spring. • Provide an instrument and all required materials. (The school has resources to help families with demonstrated financial need.) • Make sure your student has the ability and transportation necessary to carry their instrument to and from school each day for home practice, regardless of the size of the instrument.
• Practice at home for 10 minutes daily (no arguing or excuses). • Bring your instrument and music folder back and forth between school and home every day. • Participate in two evening performances.
