Nobody enjoys waiting. Whether you’re in a doctor’s office or a piano studio, waiting is boring. For young children, waiting is really boring. So, to combat the boredom, we’ve created a fun little game and free piano printable you can use to keep your little kiddos musically engaged even when they’re in the waiting room!
Keep ‘em Busy With Where’s Wolfang
This game is wonderfully simple, requires little prep, and even teaches a little bit of music history. To set up the game, print, laminate, and cut out the Where’s Wolfgang Playing Cards. Next, hide one card somewhere in your waiting room each week. Instruct your students to find the card while they’re waiting and then memorize the fact on the back of the card (be sure your students know to replace the card after it is found). Finally, if your students can recite the fact to you once they enter their lesson, give them a little prize, a little treat, or maybe just a little bit of praise!
And that’s it! Your piano students will be itching to come to piano and they won’t mind a bit if they’re early as they work their way through the card pack. Say goodbye to Waiting Room Boredom!
Music History and Music Theory don’t need to be snooze-inducing. Bring these topics to life with a little bit of creativity and fun. Our 88 activities in “Pssst…Your Piano Teacher Thinks This is Theory” definitely accomplish the “fun factor” when it comes to teaching theory and it’s a simple as pressing “print”!
