Primary Research / Interviews
In some way, the problem area for this concept was deeply influenced by my own education and experience. I received a graduate music education and had taught music to children in the past. Furthermore, in my primary research, I have heavily relied on knowledge and experience of my wife and her family - several generations of music educators.
Additionally, I looked at a few businesses, such as Stafford Music Academy - a typical music school for children, located right in Bloomington, Indiana. I have spoken to a few teachers who shared their process.
These are examples of homework logs a student fills at home while practicing.
