Have you experienced this? Your music student comes back from vacation excited…only for you to find out that they haven’t practiced and they have forgotten everything. You are not sure where to start from. Or your child is getting ready to start the new school year. Everything is in place except their motivation.
Now imagine having a great music activity to get out of situations like this and having fun with it!
I created this quick and fun music activity with flashcards for kids to get back on track in and slowly build back on their practice.
What Is It?
- A series of flashcards with superhero theme.
- Every card asks the child to do something small until they build to a 30 minute practice a day.
- The tasks are not specific to any instrument or level of playing. I have left them very open so they can be used for anyone. So both traditional teacher and Suzuki teachers of all instruments can use these.
- If you are approaching the end of a break and want your child or a private student to get back on track this would be a great way to motivate them to practice more at home.
Where to get it?
