Practise With Purpose – Video Exams Edition
We’d like to introduce the Practise With Purpose Diary which you can use to enhance your preparation for your Rockschool video exam.
Practising regularly is key to any musician’s development, regardless of where they are on their musical journey. An absolute beginner and an experienced professional will practise in very different ways, but both will need a routine that helps them to maximise their potential by attaining new skills, and then maintaining and building on them.
This practice diary helps you keep track of your daily practice and monitor your own progress. Master a technique, nail a performance piece, and prepare for your next Rockschool exam.
Here’s Sky Sports cricket commentator and former English cricketer, Charles ‘Daggers’ Dagnall, to give you some insight into how he’s been using his diary to get ready for his video exam!
On each page you’ll find space to make notes on your weekly practice routine to ensure that your sessions are as productive as possible, and that you are well prepared for the different sections of the Rockschool exams.
We’ve also included a space for teachers’ comments. Many teachers are still offering video lessons during these difficult times, so be sure to reach out to them and support them if your face to face lessons have been cancelled.
Throughout the diary there are tips to make sure your performance is captured on video in the best way. You can read more about how to make the most of your performance here.
We have included some blank sheet music as well as individual boxes for warm ups, supporting tests, and performance pieces that will allow you to identify your strengths and weaknesses, ultimately leading to more efficient and rewarding practice.
