Students are required to practice at least five days per week for six consecutive weeks. Each practice session should be minimum 30 minutes. Teachers may vary this amount depending on the age and skill of their student. Students must have their parent or guardian initial after each completed practice session.

A completed Carma's Kids Practice Award Form needs to be submitted, with a parent’s and the music teacher’s signatures. These forms must be turned in at least a week before the next Magic Valley Symphony concert by the music teacher.
