I recently started a YouTube channel to share short 5-10 minute videos on music ed related topics. I just uploaded a new video called Developing Healthy Practice Habits (Part 1) that you all might find helpful. In it, I describe my system I use to help my students understand the importance of practice. This system has worked very well for me over the years both in the classroom and in private lessons.
If you like this video, feel free to show it to your students and/or send it out to their parents. I wanted to make this video in such a way that other teachers could send it out as a resource. There's no extra fluff in the video and it's made in a way that even kids can understand! (And kids learn a lot from YouTube these days!)
I had fun putting this video together and plan to release more material like this that can be used freely by general teaching community. I hope you enjoy!
