When it comes to our skills and our communities, we should always keep trying. With our skills, we can practice, practice, practice, and with our community, we can find ways to give, support, and encourage.
Our 2021 Practice-A-Thon will help you do both! The more you practice, the more you can give back to the community. From March 1st to March 20th, we challenge you to practice as much as you can and raise support for The Conservatory’s charitable programs, which include student recitals, concerts, music therapy, Students on Tour, Kindred Arts and tuition assistance.
How It Works:
Students ask parents, relatives, parents’ coworkers, neighbors or friends to sponsor their practice time. Ask them to pledge a certain amount for every minute practiced – the more the merrier! Sponsors may also opt to donate one flat sum.
Track practice time from Monday, March 1st through Saturday, March 20th. We have provided a physical tracking log, but you can also use practice-tracking apps like Tonara.
Collect donations from sponsors by sending them the donation link. Be sure to have them make the gift in the students’ honor so we know who it supported! Cash and checks made payable to The Conservatory can be submitted by Saturday, March 27th.
Turn in practice sheets and any physical donations from Monday, March 22nd through Saturday, March 27th. More info will come with submission forms.
Win Prizes! There will be two prizes: most minutes practiced and most money raised.
Perform! All students participating in Practice-A-Thon will be eligible to perform in exclusive Virtual or In-Person recitals.
