I missed my coffee this morning. Actually, I miss it every day. I don’t drink coffee. I rely on running to wake me up.
Andrea will be the first to tell you that I am a jittery mess if I don’t burn some serious energy first thing in the morning.
People know little kids need to move, yet assume that adults (like me) can happily sit still all day.
Nope! Everyone needs to move (and this definitely includes me) but also the teens sitting at your piano bench.
Teens, however, are not going to want to move like preschoolers; it’s going to take a cool activity to pique their interest.
Today we have a printable Rapid Rhythm Challenge Pack to see just how fast your intermediate teen students can clap, tap, and snap.
Keeping Piano Lessons Interesting For Teens
Andrea and I put as much effort into constructing fresh and exciting teen piano lessons as we do when designing a preschool or primer curriculum.
Our belief that teen piano students need to do more in a lesson than just play traditional repertoire is one reason our teen piano method book series is so popular.
WunderKeys Intermediate Pop Studies For Piano is a pop-infused method that is not only packed with inspiring repertoire but also overflowing with scale practice, lap-tap-clap rhythm work, improvisation, lead sheets, and pick-a-path sight reading.

Are your intermediate teen piano students ready for a rhythm challenge? Let’s find out how well they can clap, tap, and snap the rhythms in our printable pack.
In today’s resource, you will find 17 Clap-Tap-Snap Rapid Rhythm lines. Instructions for how the lines are to be performed are included with the printable.
The rhythm lines start off easy and then get progressively harder as your students work their way toward the final levels.
