Leah Drake of Vibrant Valley Music Studio
Say hello to Vibrant Valley Music Studio
Leah Drake is a SproutBeat power user!
Since her studio is mostly group classes, you might think it’s hard to incorporate SproutBeat into lesson time. Not so! Through parent education and fun practice incentives, she has her students trained to regularly complete their SproutBeat assignments during the week.
To do this, Leah creates individual student accounts inside her SproutBeat student section. She then helps students (and parents, if needed) learn how to access the website. On their own time, students visit the SproutBeat app site to play any of the theory games or fill out the digital worksheets that show up in their Assigned section. They love that the games are short and fun, and they can choose to play them as many times as they want.
I love how this lets me personalize assignments and award points to each student. I have an incentive program that allows students to exchange their SproutBeat points for prizes. I also occasionally print out worksheets to use for assessment throughout the year.
Check out this fun practice incentive her studio participated in during the first semester of 2023:
