Teacher: “Hey Buddy, what do you want to play this week?”
Student: “I don’t know.”
Are you tired of hearing this from your students?
No doubt you’ve heard it a million times already and are starting to get a little over your student’s lack of enthusiasm.
We’ve all experienced those students who suck the fun out of lessons and make teaching feel like a chore.
Want to know how you can turn it around so that your students arrive to their lesson eager to get started and excited to learn?
Do you wish you had your finger on the pulse of what each student likes so they stay highly engaged and motivated to practice?
Clear direction sets your students up for success, so they excitedly play throughout the week and will be in lessons with you for years to come. On the other hand, if your students aren’t learning skills in the correct order, or are trying to learn music that is too difficult, they might struggle with motivation, turn up unprepared, and start to lose interest.
Learn how to teach in a clear progression while being flexible to ignite student interest and excitement.
Why not get tips from music education experts, sharpen your teaching skills, and boost the lesson experience so every lesson feels like a breeze?
