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.
I love December… I love the holidays. And, at the same time… I fear December.
My December calendar is so full that if it was a garbage can, the lid would be open and I’d be jumping up and down on it like a human trash compactor.
I can only assume that you feel my pain.
For piano teachers, “coasting to Christmas” is a term we hear… but never actually get to experience. There is simply no downtime… no such thing as taking it easy in a corner office cubicle when the big blue eyes of a six year old piano student are staring at you waiting for another activity or a new tune.
And while I can’t come and teach your lessons while you put your feet up and enjoy some holiday cheer, you can do what a ton of other teachers will be doing this holiday season…
Break Out Some Pre-Planned Piano Games
If you’re a member of TeachPianoToday’s PianoGameClub, you’ll be able to breathe a little easier this holiday season (and if you’re not a member, you can find out how to join up below).
Instead of staying up late into the night planning lessons that will tame an excited parade of young children, PianoGameClub’ers can reach for their games, last minute, and pull an incredible piano lesson out of a hat!
You’ll look like a (well-rested) superstar to your piano kids and their parents with the games from November’s collection.
Prepare to have a blast reinforcing half steps and whole steps, chord inversions, note reading in Middle C position, and harmonic, melodic and chromatic scales with Flump’s Jump, Bitter Bug Farm, Billy the Bendapillar, and Ketchup Commotion.
