I am a music teacher in Launceston, Tasmania and my 30 piano students have taken up the challenge. After seeing Elissa Milne in Melbourne we have been doing this for a while. We have a wall chart up and students get to put a sticker up on the chart when they finish their piece. They also get a small prize at the end of the year for all students who finish – some did lots more!!!
This is a wonderful challenge and the idea has completely changed the way I teach. Students’ sight reading has vastly improved and their practice is something I don’t even need to check up on any more.

To thank Sandra for her feedback about the challenge, we have sent her a copy of the brand new book 50 Songs for Children. We hope it provides even more fodder for her challenge students!
