Practice logs! Some people love them, some people hate them! I like to use them with students that are trying to learn better practice habits. If needed, I’ll have a parent or guardian sign each log for extra accountability.
Practice logs are a great way to keep record of what you are working on and where you are in the process. I still have an excel spreadsheet of what I’m working on and what I did each time. It’s also nice to see how far you’ve come!
Click through each section below to see how I layout my student practice logs, or get the free download here!
– Long Tones
– Orchestral Excerpt #1
– Orchestral Excerpt #2
– Orchestral Excerpt #3
– Solo #1
– Solo #2
– Band/Ensembe Piece #1
A student might not need all of the sections at a time, but it’s always good to change their practice routine every so often so they can stay challenged.
What do you add to your practice logs, or are you strongly against them? Let everyone know below!
