Balance & Creativity: Ideas For Your Studio

  • How Fun Piano Practice Ideas Start With Easy Improvisation
    Practice time.  It’s either the bane or joy of each teacher & student’s existence.  In my studio, I always am looking for fun piano practice ideas so between lessons is …
  • Planning Made Easy
    Planning lessons can take up a lot of time. When I first began teaching, I was told to budget an hour for each hour I taught. Thankfully, there are tools that have taken that planning time to a much more reasonable & sustainable level.
  • Lazin’ Around … Teacher Style
    Over the summer, I like to make a list of tasks that I want to accomplish before the rush of a new school year starts.

  • Fun Music Theory Ideas For End of Year

They are tired, both mentally & physically. Plus, with end of year exams, projects, outdoor sports & more out-of-town activities on the weekends … it really isn’t a wonder that our students, their families, & perhaps even us, as teachers, need a change. These are the apps & activities my students are doing this month to ensure they are summer ready for whatever they choose to play!
