As the end of the school year approaches, teachers begin to infuse their piano lessons with a little extra fun.
Some teachers will take their kids out for sidewalk chalk theory while others pull out some skipping ropes for active rhythm exercises.
Teen piano students, however, generally stick pretty close to the piano bench.
But I think they deserve some of that end-of-year music excitement too; a little bit of a break from all of their hard work.
With today’s Celtic piano solo and lap, tap, clap rhythm accompaniment exercise, you and your teens can mix it up a bit, while reinforcing the 6/8 time signature.

When it comes to teen repertoire, we focus on creating a bridge that connects today’s piano students with the most popular classical pieces from the past.
This classical pop crossover approach is at the heart of our most popular teen books, including titles like The Amadeus Anthems, The Beethoven Sessions, and, of course, the WunderKeys Intermediate Pop Performance books.
