Today's Tip
While practicing the violin, try to talk about the good things going on during the practice.  It is far better to say, "Now let's see if you can do it even better this time," than it is to say, "This last one wasn't quite a good as you had been doing."  I am not trying to indicate that I believe in only telling someone good things.  What I have experienced, though, is that adverse criticism, no matter how minor, brings about frustration.  A frustrated student only makes more mistakes.
Practice Magnet
This is a great practice reminder.  A refrigerator magnet that frowns before practice, but when you have finished practice you get to twist the magnet around. Move your mouse over the picture to see what happens!

Practice Done!  And the frown turns into a smile. Good motivator for young students!
Great for Their Halloween Goodie Bags! And it's under $4 at our CafePress Shop!
