6-8 Band Expectations
Each band member is expected to turn in a practice log each week.  Practice logs are different than practice cards.  Practice logs keep track of what the student has practiced and fixed each time they sat down and practiced.  Students are expected to do 4 practice logs entries per week.  Each entry needs to be 3-4 sentences, and the students need to write (in complete sentences) what they practiced and how they fixed the problems.  Each entry is 25 points, and they need four entries per week.  In total, the practice logs are 100 pts/week.   

The goal of the practice log is that the students fix problems they are having with their music, not the amount of time they are practicing.  Studies have shown that shorter, more consistent practice times are more effective in students' learning.
