Practice logs begin the week of September 24! Practice Logs are a required part of the band grade in Tharp Band.
How Does It Work?
Practice Log Links are located in Canvas. We will download the weekly practice log and fill out the Assignment section together every Monday during band class. Students will record all home practice (including the “what did you practice” section) on this log throughout the week, get it signed and submitted to Canvas on Monday of the following week. We will take class time every Monday to submit the weekly practice log
How Long Do I Practice?
Students are required to practice a minimum of 60 minutes each week and a minimum of 3 days each week. 4 days of 15 minutes each or 3 days of 20 minutes each are examples of good practice habits. Percussionists should split their time between bells and pad (about 30 minutes each instrument per week)
How Are Practice Logs Graded?
How Do Practice Logs Get Submitted?
All practice logs are due to Canvas the following Monday. Please get them signed Sunday evening so you can submit on time. ALL practice logs MUST be signed by an adult to receive any points. DO NOT submit a practice log without a parent signature. Parents can sign with a finger or stylus – please no typed signatures.
If your child takes private lessons on their band instrument, they can write down the lesson time as a day of practice. I would also like them to check mark the box at the bottom of each practice log so I am aware of these lessons.
