One of the key factors in ensuring the success of your piano studio is in having invested piano students. And the best way to have invested piano students is to have involved piano parents. So when the warm months hit, and everyone gets distracted by picnics, cottages, tent trailers and mosquitos… it’s also time for piano teaches to ramp up their attempts at continuing family involvement in piano lessons. No one wants two months worth of lag time.
Parents + Kids = Piano Success
It’s not difficult to keep families involved in their children’s piano education… but it does take effort. However, YOU want a summer too! So, here are 16 Amazing Summer Piano Projects that will keep your families “thinking piano” but that takes less than 5 minutes of your time to implement!
All you need to do is print out this free sheet, send it home, and ask your piano kids to complete all 16 piano challenge tasks before the summer is over. If you are teaching during the summer, this is a project that can continue on in the background. If you take a break in the summer, this is something that can keep your students engaged in music during their time away from lessons. We all expect piano students to practice during the summer months… but these activities encourage more than just practice.
Involved Family Is Key
We spend so much time as piano teachers on keeping students interested… and it’s easy to forget that we should also be focusing on involving the family. When we create Teach Piano Today’s products we do so with an awareness of the importance of the role of parents in piano education. If you’re looking for simple ways to involve Mom and Dad, then we have 88 activities that will be a blast for all involved… AND teach important theory concepts. One mom recently wrote to me about the book and said “Tonight’s family dinner was absolutely hilarious… who knew music theory could be so much fun?!“
