Great idea here @Pierrot - I will be recording a practice plan for the Chord Extensions Course in the next day or 2.
This will be similar to the Foundations Practice Lesson - find it here.
Practice Plan PDF Documents
Below you can find the practice plan that we compiled for the Foundation Course, and also a blank planner document:

And here is a blank planning document:

My practice planning lessons:
The plan & accompanying lesson that I made above was very graphic intensive, and so it took a while to prepare and edit the lesson. I’m happy to do this as I know the benefit this will give students in terms of focus and direction through the PianoGroove syllabus.
What would be cool:
Any practice plans that are created by the community, we record either part, or all of our practice plan, and this is uploaded this as an accompanying video along with a PDF.
The most exciting thing about this is that we all have very different backgrounds and musical educations, inspirations etc. and I think that there is so much value to be gained from working collaboratively like this.
A New Forum Category “Pratice Plans”?
Perhaps we should create a new forum category for this, where the practice plans for all courses can be stored, and also the show the practice plans submitted from the community.
That way we would have it all in one place so new students can head straight to this area to get inspired on what and how to practice.
Plans would be available for complete beginners, and also plans available for very specific area of jazz, such as: comping, reharmonising, improvisation, etc…
An exciting concept here! I like it
