Once a month, Trevor and I take a quick break from our regular blog posts to share the latest games from our monthly resource PianoGameClub. If you’re looking to pump up the fun in your lessons, then check out our game previews at the end of this post.
During Halloween, Christmas, Easter and various other holidays, our piano students’ excitement for lessons goes through the roof.
And it’s no wonder… check out any great piano teacher’s studio Instagram account or Facebook page around these holidays and you’ll see pictures of seriously inspired studios. What child wouldn’t want to play a spooky soundtrack as his teacher reads a Halloween ghost story? What student wouldn’t want to compose a musical letter to Santa Claus?
Holidays allow for themed piano lessons. Kids love themed piano lessons. Parents love teachers who create lessons that excite and motivate their children.
But what is a teacher to do about themed excitement when a holiday is over? Well… here is what I do…
When I Can’t Rely On Holidays For Excitement…
I fall back on my collection of piano games. Just as kids love learning about composing by writing musical letters to Santa, they also love gaining piano theory knowledge and ear training skills with the kooky and loveable game concepts we deliver each month to our PianoGameClub subscribers.
And this month’s PianoGameClub game set takes loveable and kooky to a whole new and wonderful level!
With games like Batty For Lightning Bugs, Tin Can Turmoil, Chip It, and Pit Crew Pandas… you can only imagine how excited your piano students will be to learn all about dynamic markings, sixteenth note rhythms, quarter, half and whole rests, and listening for beats in 4/4 time… no matter what time of year it may be!
