Do you love to play music? Are you learning to play an instrument at weekly lessons or using videos at home? You can collect Children's University Scotland credits for practising at home with our Children's University Music Diary!
How to use the diary
First, click 'Download' or the picture to download a copy of the diary, and print off the diary. Each week, pick two of the starter questions from page 1 to answer. If you're stuck or aren't sure what to write - you can always speak to your music teacher or someone at home about your practice. Fill in a goal at the start of each week, and check off at the end of the week if you've achieved it (or not yet). We've made an example diary to help you if you're not sure what to do, download it here.
Collecting your credit
You can collect a credit each week you fill in the diary. So, once you've filled in a week in the diary, log onto www.CUS-Aspire.com and search for 'Children's University Music Diary'. Omce you've completed all the weeks in a diary, you can print another one and start again from week 1.
Get in touch
We'd love to hear about how you're enjoying the music diary - why not email us at email@example.com and let us know? You can also share with us on Facebook (search: Children's University Scotland), or Twitter (@ChildrenUniScot).
