Once a month, Andrea 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.
For most piano studios, recital season is underway. Teachers are stressing over preparations and students are stressing with performance anxiety.
Piano recitals are a beautiful thing… but the weeks leading up to them can be a bit tense. It is important during this time that piano teachers make sure that their students have not lost sight of what piano lessons are all about!
There is a tendency for all of us to lose focus during the lessons leading up to a recital. Everyone is so concerned about recital readiness, that the usual enjoyment of music making takes a back seat. And this is the worst thing that can happen! Recitals usually make the end of a year, and it is important that kids finish up with fun.
Regardless of how rushed you may be at this time of year, if your students are maxing-out their musical stress levels, step back and have a little fun with the 4 resources we’re previewing in today’s post.
Take The Stress Out Of Piano Recital Season
If you and your piano students are feeling a little stressed, a simple, five minute break may be all that is needed to get everyone back on track. And a great way to fill a five minute break with fun is to have an enjoyable game-based learning experiencing using one of the four games we send out to our PianoGameClub subscribers each and every month!
This April we cranked up our creativity to bring our PianoGameClub subscribers four theory and ear training games that reinforce harmonic intervals, key signatures, chord tones, and steps, skips, and leaps.
Your kids will be laughing and learning as they engage with dirt-digging dogs searching for bones, a distraught pig racing to finish his home, menacing linebackers chasing a quivering quarterback, and two goalies stopping slap shots.
