15 Minute Timer

I have a 7 year old who has to practice at least an hour a day. That is a lot of practicing for someone that young. My idea this week is to break down the practicing into four 15 minute sessions. One 15 minute session is working on her newest pieces. When the timer goes off we stop. Other 15 minute sessions include review, Christmas/Group pieces, and her “alone practice.” She’s learning to practice on her own so there are certain things that she practices without me.

So far, this 15 minute method is working well, except we don’t usually get all 4 sessions in each day. But, she’s been a happy practicer and that is so much better than the alternative!
