Andrea and I have shared many practice incentives on the blog. Today’s incentive is the simplest we’ve shared to date… and it also might be the most effective! Even if many of your students are already on break, simply email today’s single page incentive and be amazed at their progress when they return to lessons in January.
Because you’re probably run off your feet, I am going to keep today’s post short and sweet! If you are worried that the coming holidays will mean forgotten piano books and dusty pianos, then our Christmas Coloring Challenge might be just what you need to keep your kids practicing!
A Christmas Coloring Challenge For Your Piano Students
The Christmas Coloring Challenge described below works best for students between the ages of five and ten, but coloring is all the rage these days… so go ahead and use it with your teen piano students as well! Here is how it works:
- Send home (or email) our Christmas Coloring Challenge with your piano students.
- Have them complete each of the tasks described in the left sidebar.
- Every time they complete a task, they color the numbered sections of the drawing according to the star beside the task completed.
- For example, if your students complete the task beside the dark brown star containing the number “1”, they use a brown marker to color all sections on the drawing labeled with the number “1”.
- Instruct your students to bring the completed drawing to their first lessons following the holiday break and reward them with a special prize/display them in your studio etc.
