If getting piano students to read your lesson notes is like pulling teeth, over the next month we’ll be sharing a few printables that might just make this challenge a whole lot easier!
The Problem With Piano Lesson Notes…
…They’re boring! I know… they’re often written for the parents and therefore don’t need too much pomp and circumstance, but imagine if you could write them just for kids and in a way kids would actually want to pay attention to them! How’s that for taking ownership?!
The Next Problem With Piano Lesson Notes…
…They’re too long! When I send lesson notes home with my piano kids I whittle them down to the bare essentials. I always ask myself, “What is the one thing I want this child to come back having accomplished?” When I have that one thing, I am ready to write my lesson notes with a real focus.
Finally, Let’s Make It Fun!
If you’re a regular reader of the Teach Piano Today blog, then you know that we like to keep piano lessons entertaining and full of life… not just for the kids, but for ourselves too. And we figured, “Why can’t we have fun with lesson notes too?!”
So if you want to jazz up your piano lesson notes (even just once in a while) our first activity is a great way to rid students of their practice fears. You can print the activity out by clicking here.
Have a blast!
