Practice Tricks Pack


One of the biggest challenges we as piano teachers face is how to teach and encourage really good practicing skills at home. Without the know-how and a way to motivate students to use good strategies, many practice hours are wasted every week. This adorable Practice Tricks Pack helps to keep young practicers focused and teaches 33 different practice strategies that are based on sound piano pedagogy concepts. It includes colorful and fun printables to encourage continued use of these strategies at home, and all of the necessary explanations to help parents assist as well. 44 pages, digital download.


What’s included in the Practice Tricks Pack:

  • A Note to Parents about Practicing – We’ve got to get the parents on board if we want our students to truly excel. This two-page letter explains the importance of consistent and effective practice and why parents need to stay involved; it also gives parents ideas of specific things they can do to be a great piano parent! This is perfect to distribute to parents with their child’s new Practice Trick Cards. 2 pages
  • Practice Tricks Cards – Includes 33 full-color illustrated cards, size 2.5″x3.5″. Each card represents one of the practice “tricks” or strategies.

Students use these at home to help them practice their repertoire using lots of different efficient strategies. These make a really adorable addition to any “practice kit” you may distribute to your students. 7 pages
