I love practice buddies! They are a fun way to focus on specific things and create a neutral voice in your practice.
What do I mean by neutral voice? That is when something else is giving instruction or telling your child what step to take next. I know, I know, you as the parent are the one controlling the practice buddy, but that’s not how it seems to the child. To them a fun buddy is the one giving the tip.
Not only that, but often using a practice buddy helps you as a parent stay focused on only one task. Even though I know better, sometimes I just want to get in there and fix all the things! A practice buddy usually has one specific job that can help everyone focus on just that.
Here are some practice buddies that we use in the studio and in our home (Please note: These are affiliate links, which means that if you click on one of the product links, I’ll receive a small commission, but at no extra cost to you.
