I have posted on something like this before, but decided to bring up this topic again. What are your feelings on kids' practice habits? What do you ask students to do? I have worked with teachers who use these various schools of thought, and I was wondering what you do.
1. Practice at least ___ minutes a day/week.
2. It doesn't matter how much you practice as long as you know your pieces.
Currently, I am asking my kids to practice a measly 30 minutes a week.... I am thinking about changing the requirement to at least 15 minutes daily to work on consistency and retention. HOWEVER, sometimes I feel my kids use this time to goof around and not work on their assignments. Basically, I wanted to know your initial thoughts on practicing, keeping in mind that parental support on average is minimum.
