Best Practices for Practice: A seminar for parents on practicing

As a parent, do you know what makes a successful practice session? It may look different each day. It may even involve a lollipop!

“She’s just not learning.”
“It’s always a fight.”
“He used to like to practice, what happened?”

What we're doing to help
One of CCM’s goals is to give our students and parents ways to structure successful practice sessions. We hope that at the end of the day, the week, the semester both you and your musician have grown – and are smiling.
