Having a studio recital is a lot of work. And, it’s completely worth it. But, you may be thinking, “The recital is over … now what?” Maybe you are feeling burnt out or “burnt out adjacent” (the feeling of don’t-add-anything-more-because-I-am-JUST-barely-able-to-get-everything-done). Having some post recital ideas to keep lessons engaging is a must!
There are many reasons teachers choose their studio repertoire. But, is it actually worth teaching classical music? Especially when today’s students might not be too interested in the “dead white guys” that have historically appeared in the classical canon.
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 a joy … not a struggle. Otherwise, I know it won’t happen.
