You have to work out the economy so that you can afford it. Maybe they get one buck for filling their practice expectations for a week and then it may cost 20 piano bucks to buy a pencil or a cookie.

Yes, a pencil would be a major prize, but it needs to be cool pencil grin Start with stickers.

If you ever pass by a Chuck E. Cheese, go take a look at their reward station.

And look at the kids who enjoy Chuck E. Cheese. If they don't look like your students then you might need a different system.

So many have already spoken, so I just want to add that rewarding student effort to achieve personal best is especially appropriate for a classroom or studio with younger students and with those who don't have professional aspirations. As kids get older, with those who strive to pursue a subject area as a career, rewarding achievement (compared with others) becomes more important.
