|Violin Tip of the Day
For Violin Students of All Ages
|Practice and Rehearsal Tips. Technique Pointers. Violin Care Guidance. Exercises and Motivation for Violinists, Fiddlers or Anyone Interested in Stringed Instruments.|
|Sometimes the best way to ensure a good practice is some sort of reward or treat for achieving specific goals. (Never promise a reward for something as nebulous as "a good practice.") At times my daughter liked little pieces of candy, but other things like stickers were equally effective at times. A healthy snack like grapes worked well, too.
And I liked to coordinate treats with the season or a holiday. It's getting close to Valentine's Day. A great reward might be 2 or 3 candy hearts!
Sometimes the reward can be an activity, like watching a movie together. Or maybe not having to do a specific chore around the house one time. What about buying a special piece of sheet music as a reward every now and then?
Think about what kinds of rewards excite your violinist (even if that violinist is you) and offer rewards every now and then! I still use rewards to motivate myself at times, and I've been playing more than 40 years!
