100-Day Challenge: Print out a certificate for your students who complete the challenge.pdf
The completed practice sheets continue to pour in. If you haven't tried this with your students, you can still start now. As one teacher said, "The 100 days of practicing has inspired my students to more than I thought each was capable!"
We will continue this challenge in the upcoming year, and students may start at any time. Check out the students who have played for 100 days at http://www.instrumentalistmagazine.com/100%20day%20challenge.php
