Andrea and I rarely take a break. But when the stars align and we do get some time to ourselves we usually fill it with a project.
Typically, it’s something like replacing the deck or staining the fence; as you may have guessed, we don’t do well with idle time.
Kids don’t do well with idle time either, and there’s a lot of it in the summer.
Sure, some freedom is nice for the first few days, but before you know it they are bouncing off the walls.
Kids need structure and a purpose.
And today we’re sharing a composing piano project that will give them a purpose… at least for the first week of summer.
With a fun Olympic theme, cute graphics, and goofy lyrics, your piano students will be happy to spend some time on the piano making music.
