Practice tracking and history
With our practice tools, you can keep track of when and which pieces of music you’ve practiced. It’s super simple and (in our experience) provides an extra bit of motivation. Don’t break the streak!
Practice tracking is limited to customers in a paid plan.
Marking a slice as practiced
When you view a slice in a practice list, you’ll see a “Practice log” section in the practice sidebar:
These circles represent the last seven calendar days, including today. (Today is always on the right.) For each day you practiced this piece of music, the circle is green. This quickly shows you your practice streak.
When you’ve practiced the slice for the day, just click that button to mark it as practiced:
Man, that’s satisfying.
Remember, Good Things come to those who practice consistently. (Good Things include but are not limited to: better technique, prettier tone, ability to play cleanly at faster speeds, comfort with one’s instrument, a wide repertoire and general musicianship.)
Viewing your practice history
The practice log on an individual slice only shows seven days, for simplicity. But you can access your full practice history (at least since you started using Soundslice’s practice tools) to dive deeper.
To view your practice history, go to your practice homepage and click the “History” tab:
On this page, you’ll see your full history, sorted by date. This includes all the times you marked a slice as practiced, plus all the private notes you’ve created. It looks like this:
If I’ve put a slice in multiple practice lists, how does the “mark as practiced” feature work?
If you mark a slice as practiced, it will be marked as practiced in every one of its practice lists. In other words, this is a global thing, across all your practice lists.
(For purposes of practice history, we’ll record the practice list in which you marked the slice as practiced.)
Is there a prize for longest practice streak?
Yes! The prize is you become a better musician.
I forgot to mark my slice as practiced, but I really did practice yesterday! What can I do?
Come on, tell the truth. You’re only cheating yourself.
No, seriously, I honestly did practice. Is there a way to mark a slice as practiced for yesterday, or any other date in the past?
OK, we believe you. At the moment, we don’t have a way to do this. You can only mark something as practiced today.
But depending on feedback, we’ll consider tweaking the way this thing works. (Let us know your feedback!)
