The holiday season can feel a bit… rushed. The never-ending stream of students in and out of your piano studio is filled with recital prep and holiday music. And while it’s all very festive and fun, it can leave you feeling as though you just need to take a moment to breathe.
And taking that moment is not only nice… it’s important. Whenever your lessons begin to feel like a production line, it’s a good moment to take a step back and spend some time doing what truly matters; sharing the joy of learning music with your students.
One of the best ways to do that is with a piano game. Playing a game with your students gives you that valuable moment to stop rushing and reconnect by having some good, old fashioned, laugh-out-loud fun.
Today, in the spirit of the season, we’ve create a printable piano game to give to you! We hope it gives you the incentive to take that “moment” with your students in the weeks to come; their overwhelmed, busy brains will thank you!
