        --Nomenclature cards and answers

This is ELFamilyAcademy's lesson chart that we try to follow during the week. It does not include the students' music lessons or practice nor workshops or field trips that come along. This chart is posted where students can view it and cross it off themselves.  273k v. 4 Feb 10, 2012, 4:44 PM E Filippi

A little bit at a time makes a lot of progress. These are the punch cards we use for instrument practice (drums, guitar, piano, voice). Notice they are in 10 minute increments? That's all we ask for each day--but if they want to earn another punch, that's even better! When the card is complete, $3 is rewarded for the good practice. (We don't give weekly allowances)  531k v. 2 Jun 13, 2012, 6:31 PM E Filippi
