Guided Practice FAQ

So… it’s not a lesson? 🧐
In music lessons, students learn how to play their instruments. The purpose of music practice is to revise what they have learned. Guided Practice is the best of both worlds! Practice Mentors make sure students are focused, encourage them when the going gets tough, and are there to celebrate the wins, making learning much more fun 🤩
I’m a parent, and I struggle to get my child to practice 😳 Will this help?
By making practice more engaging and enjoyable for learners, Guided Practice can help encourage students who need a little extra push to get practising. And because Guided Practice is a regularly scheduled activity with a person external to the family, it creates a sense of routine and reduces parent-child “practice battles”. The result? Students logging quality practice time more, dragging their feet a little less, and getting better at their instruments faster. A true win-win! 🥇
