The focus of this download is on developing executive function skills in beginner to intermediate students, and can be used with any instrument.


The Practice time cards give the student a feeling of control over what they are doing, and help them to recognise when they are feeling frustrated, when they are not concentrating, and when they need a break. They also help develop organisation skills and emotional regulation.


These cards may be particularly useful for students who find it difficult to concentrate and stay on task, as well as for older students (7 years +) who are developing independence in all areas of their lives.


Also included is a practice planning board and a 21 days of practice chart to help with motivation and organisation.


This download is intended to provide parents, practice partners and studio teachers with additional resources.


Parents/teachers may wish to laminate the cards and the practice planning board to make them reusable.
