Feature Friday: MEGA Music Puzzle BUNDLE

*Heads up- next week I will be skipping Feature Friday while I am in Chicago for the NCKP conference. It will resume the following week.   Do you remember doing puzzles growing up? I grew up doing puzzles with my mom and siblings. My mom loved doing puzzles and many times she would have a card table set up in the family room with a puzzle on it, especially during the summer months when we were out of school. Reading and puzzles were a favorite summer activity. Wonderful memories! I thought I would feature my MEGA puzzle bundle which includes 12 […]

Feature Friday: Practice Incentive Programs

I love to do practice incentive programs with my students each year. Not only do they help motivate many of my students, but just having a new theme to look forward to motivates and gets me excited for the new year. The great thing about practice incentive program is that not only it helps engage students during the year but it helps them accomplish goals. Whether it is specific practice goals or leveling up in some way, they are able to really see measurable progress. For today’s Feature Friday I thought I would highlight all the practice incentive programs that […]

But…. if you happen to be reading this a little too late, you will be happy to know that ALL my […]

Feature Friday: Composer Time Capsules

One of my favorite group lesson activities was one I did over 10 years ago, composer time capsules. Time capsules are a fun way to not only learn about someone but they are a great way to remember interesting facts and stories. A couple years ago I started to make my composer time capsules available for teachers to use. Each time capsule comes with 16 facts about a composer and picture cards representing those facts. The best way to see what these time capsules are all about is to watch me introduce them in this video. (The video is older so it […]

Feature Friday: Practice Makes Perfect or Does It?

Practice Makes Perfect or DOES It is a workshop I have been holding with my students for over 10 years. It is one of my favorites because students walk away fully armed with a better understanding of how they should practice. Watch the video to find out which resource I use with students is one of my favorites and why. While I use this workshop for my piano students, it really can be used with any instrument. I think there is only one page in the workbook you would want to pull and just one of the optional outside resources you may not want to use (or can […]
