Over the next few weeks many of us will be welcoming our piano students back to lessons after a summer break. This is one of the most exciting times of the year… but it is also one of the most challenging.
Why? Because after a break from lessons (even a short one) many of our students’ playing skills will have collected some cobwebs… and cobwebs can seriously hamper progress and enjoyment right off the bat.
So, as teachers, we are faced with the challenge of reviewing tired, old tunes and skills from the previous term, all the while attempting to pump up our students for an exciting new year.
And since “review” and “exciting” don’t generally go hand-in-hand, the challenge is very real!
Never ones to back down from a difficult task, Trevor and I were inspired to create an adrenaline-pumping piano resource for piano that would accomplish two goals:
- make students go wild with excitement when returning to lessons
- provide quick-to-learn repertoire to shake off the cobwebs
The result? August’s Book of the Month from PianoBookClub: Cob Webster: Launching Off With Lead Sheets!
Cob Webster: Launching Off With Lead Sheets
With Cob Webster: Launching Off With Lead Sheets, we’ve reached deep into our bag of creativity to bring your elementary and late-elementary students 18 (yes 18!) rockin’ lead sheets that are hyper-focused on refreshing technical skills, can be learned in less than 10 minutes, and are an absolute riot!
This book of repertoire is divided into three stellar sections: Intervals On The Ocean, Skate Park Beats, and Big Air Articulations.
