When one of my piano students arrived in soccer cleats, bouncing a ball from knee to knee as she strode through my studio doors, I became keenly aware that we’ve arrived at that time of year when it gets difficult to keep our “energetic” piano students focused and motivated.
And the fact of the matter is, for many of us who take a bit of a summer break, there are still six to ten weeks of lessons remaining where we need to hammer home some serious educational value.
Which is why a whole bunch of piano teachers will be bringing out repertoire from our newest book, Agent Major and the Misadventures of Professor Pentascalius… a heroic, comic-based resource that will keep your energetic, elementary-level students hyper-motivated until the very last lesson all the while begging to play piano pieces that leave their C position comfort zone!
