- This Week's Practice Journal
This Week's Practice JournalWeekly Practice Logs
All students in the National Trail Middle School Band Program will be required to complete at least 60 minutes a week of practice (in addition to the regular 2-3 days a week of class). This is equivalent to practicing 12-15 minutes a day, four to five days a week. Musical performance is a physical activity which requires frequent repetition of newly acquired skills. My recommendation is to pick a time each day to spend practicing and stick to it.
The student with the highest total logged minutes at the end of each quarter will receive a PRIZE!If you lost the sheet, I have attached an extra to print off. Let Ms. Norrod know if you have any questions.
