Once a month, Andrea and I take a quick break from our regular blog posts to share the latest games from our monthly resource PianoGameClub. If you’ve been thinking about jazzing up your studio with game-based learning check out the previews at the end of the post.
The piano games we send out are proving to be a smash hit with kids in studios all over the world. But what we’re quickly discovering is that, while they work wonders with kids and pre-teens, teachers are also having a ton of success using them with teens and adults too!
Teens and adults tend to be a little less carefree than kids, and they can bring a certain level of seriousness to lessons that can make learning piano stressful. So, perhaps getting them off the bench and lightening the mood a little with piano games is the reason teachers are having a blast playing games with students of ALL ages.
In fact, just recently a teacher wrote us to say:
“I have this teenage student… she was going to quit piano lessons, but after I started, first, playing all these activities, and then I joined PianoGameClub.com and started playing the games with her, she became so happy about piano lessons that her father asked me to book a place for her this term. She is now considering having piano lessons twice a week and she told a friend about the lessons, and her friend is starting piano lessons in April! 🙂 I have no words to thank you enough!” ~ Maria
So, while our games this month do an incredible job of teaching kids about whole steps and half steps, tonic and dominant, melodic intervals (and more!) … you may have surprising results by pulling them out when your (early elementary through late elementary level) adults and teens walk through your studio doors too!
