100 Days of Practice Club
Did you know that Note-worthy Experiences has a 100 Days of Consecutive Practice Club that anyone can join? Participants should let Renee know when they will complete their 100 Days. Students completing their 100 Consecutive Days of Practice will be invited to an ice cream party and be awarded a trophy at the next recital. (An alternative to the ice cream social will be provided due to COVID-19.) Students who complete 100 Days in a row are encouraged to work on 200, 300, through 1000 consecutive days. Trophies are awarded at our two major recitals per year.
