 100-Day Club

Join the Club!

Dr. Suzuki said, "only practice on the days you eat." At the American Suzuki Institute, we take that message very seriously. The ASI 100 Day Practice Club was started by ASI teacher and Suzuki pioneer, Craig Timmerman. Students (and teachers) who have practiced at least 100 days consecutively are welcomed and encouraged to join this elite club of dedicated musicians.  We celebrate the focus and energy which you, your practice partner, and your teacher have put into joining the 100-Day Practice Club. We have been amazed throughout the years at the number of ASI students who have not missed a day of practice, not just 100 or 200 days, but YEARS! Practicing can be a habit that's hard to break! 

To help you keep track of your 100 consecutive days, we have created an ASI 100-Day Club Coloring Chart. Click the link, download and print your form, and sart coloring!!!

When you have completed 100 days or more of consecutive practice, please complete the ASI 100-Day Practice Club Members Form. As is tradition, your name will be shared during the Wednesday ASI Talent (?) Show, and you will receive a printable certificate as a memento of your achievement!
