Today marks the first IdeaSwap of the new year… and it’s destined to be a doozy. Unlike past IdeaSwaps, where the strategies came fast and furious, today’s topic is going to really stretch the creative boundaries of our piano teaching imaginations. And although it may seem a bit of a challenge, the payoff should be huge!
What’s an IdeaSwap?
If this is your first time taking part in the Teach Piano Today IdeaSwap, I’ll outline the process in 4 simple steps…
- We… post the this week’s topic
- You… fill out the form below detailing your unique piano teaching idea
- We… compile all of the ideas we receive into a tidy little eBook
- We… send the eBook (on Monday) to everyone who submitted an idea
Today’s Topic: Playing Scales – How Do you Make Them Exciting (or at least manageable)?
Scales seem to be “just one of those things” students, and their teachers, must get through near the beginning of each lesson. They can be boring to play, and boring to teach. But they don’t have to be. So we want to know… how do you make scales exciting?! How do you “jazz them up”, so to speak? If you have a great strategy… or even a great yet to-be-tried idea… fill out the form below. If you are drawing a blank, strap on that thinking cap and see what you can come up with… we dare you![contact-form-7 404 "Not Found"]
