For many families, April marks the beginning of a very busy season. New sports begin and school starts ramping up for a final push before summer (if you live in the Northern Hemisphere). Distractions from piano lessons seem to pop up everywhere.
And as it turns out, this is further complicated by the fact that around this time many families decide if they’ll be continuing piano lessons into the next school year.
Which is why there is no better time of the year to start using some serious out-of-the-box piano repertoire. This month we just released My Piano Teacher Thinks She’s A Ninja – Tunes For Teaching Technical Tricks. Check out the video preview below and then keep reading to see the music.

My Piano Teacher Thinks She’s A Ninja
Do you have piano students who love a good challenge, who get excited about “showing their stuff”, and who could really benefit from some focused attention on technique? “My Piano Teacher Thinks She’s a Ninja” is your repertoire solution!
Now that you’re armed with this set of pieces designed to focus on “Technical Tricks”, your piano students will be honing their skills… like a ninja!
Each short piece targets a specific technical ability, giving you the motivating repertoire you need to engage your students while polishing their technical skills like a Ninja Grand Master. Each piece is preceded by a “Piano Ninja Training Page”, providing three steps to mastering the technical trick before it is placed within the context of the piece. This book includes two versions of every piece; one with a key signature and one where accidentals are used in place of a key signature to enable many different levels of students to participate.
