Right now, most piano teachers who take a short break for the summer (like me) are looking ahead to the next school year and are hunting down those re-registration replies.
After all, this time of year is both the best and worst time for piano lesson re-registration. March and April are simply too far in advance to secure a commitment that matters… and July and August are too late to capture families whose minds have switched to vacation mode.
And so, with absolutely no other choice, May and June represent re-registration season in my studio. This (of course) is horribly ironic and stressful, because with summer approaching and spring activities encroaching, the focus on piano lessons can start to fade…
Which is exactly what I don’t want to happen during re-registration season! 🙂 When those forms get sent home I need them going home in the hands of students who are begging to come back to piano lessons.
So, at this time of year, I rely heavily on piano games to provide provide the fun, yet educational focus my students need to stay excited about piano lessons. There’s nothing that makes me smile more then seeing a piano student race to my studio door even when the sun is shining and other kids are at the beach or the park.
And I’m betting his parents are smiling too 🙂
