A Note of Description
The Incentive Points Program is just that - a "points program". In addition, each student will receive weekly points for all the other assignments & activities that are a part of music study, based on the Incentive Points Program Activity List. Students then receive "rewards" for their points in two ways, as explained below.
It has been determined that a student who does everything assigned, who reaches his or her Practice Goal every week, and who performs periodically at Community Service Performances - as well as at the Annual Recital - will accumulate approximately 10,000 points in one year.
A “Running Points Total” of all the points earned since the day lessons began will be kept in the student's Assignment Notebook. (Don't lose this notebook - if you do, we won't know how many points you have.)
Twice a year, the student's Practice Record and "Guideline Compliance" (see below under "A Note of Qualification"
for more about Guidelines) will be reviewed.
