At this time of year, many piano teachers are either prepping for recitals and exams, or are just finishing recitals and exams. And though it may seem like the pressure is off (or soon to be off) after a “big event”, it is absolutely crucial that piano teachers find a way to both breathe a sigh of relief AND keep student motivation and enjoyment high.
A great way to achieve both of these goals is by using piano games! Diving directly into new repertoire or exam material can be a recipe for student and teacher burnout. This is why, following big studio events, piano games always take center stage in my studio.
Even if someone loses, playing games creates a win-win situation. The kids stay excited, the learning continues, and it eases my prep. It’s ok to be selfish with our prep time at least once a year, right?!
