The season of “missed piano lessons” is upon us… how do you prepare?
In our neck of the woods, the weather is finally starting to improve. After spending the last few months in a cold rain cloud, there is finally light at the end of the tunnel. In fact, as me and my Lexi-loo walked through the park the other day we found our first daffodil in bloom!
And while I love Spring’s little signals, I was also reminded that the season of “missed piano lessons” is upon us!
As the weather improves, people head outdoors, and new sports and activities begin. Piano lessons no longer have a nice little monopoly over the dark days of winter.
How Do Your Piano Lessons Compete?
Even if you have an iron-clad piano policy, people are still going to start missing the occasional lesson in favor of baseball, lacrosse, scouts, and soccer. And while you can certainly adopt the “Oh well, their loss!” attitude, we, of course, want our piano students attending regularly; we want our piano students to choose piano OVER baseball or soccer or scouts!
At our music school we launch all sorts of fun in April, including casual Spring concerts, Piano Parties, and one month Practice Incentive Programs to name a few. It is absolutely essential that we keep our piano students interested and engaged in these last few months so that they are eager to re-register for next year.
Now It’s Your Turn!
We’d love to hear how you ramp up piano lessons in the last few months of the year! Feel free to share your comments below…
