My 12 year old daughter is a wonderful violinist - yet she hates to practice. She's been playing for 7 years, but still needs incentives to practice for even 45 minutes daily. She is in a youth orchestra which motivates her until she knows the music. She has a daily schedule and sticks to it mostly, but she just dosen't like to practice and therefore dosen't practice well. She says she does not want to quit - she likes playing, just not practicing! Does anyone have any suggestion besides bribery, money, sticker charts etc. to get her to like practicing.
