New Year!

It's the start of a new year, and new things will come! I love New Year's in that I often need times of "refreshment" to put things back into perspective and start anew.

This year some of my New Years' Resolutions for piano lessons will be:

Incorporating site-reading "games" into lessons and even combining lessons for students with classes next to each other.

  • Incorporating a Hanon "contest" for the students, with a reward for those who have mastered the most Hanons per quarter, based on ability.

  • Making sure that each of my students truly understand the minor keys and their relationship with the major keys (Lesson 18 of Chord Piano Is Fun!.) 

  • Have each student write a song in a minor key to perform at recital (Lessons 25 of Chord Piano Is Fun.)

  • Planning another performance for the retirement center.

  • Planning more "outings" to watch a piano performance.

  • Making "piano dates" with my other piano teacher friends in the area to talk about new ideas, what works, what doesn't, etc.

  • Connect with more piano teachers and their blogs and on facebook and twitter...what a great way to resource!

Would love comments on other ideas piano teachers might have for this new year!
