Humor Can Help You Teach

Laughter lightens the air.

We don’t want our students tuning us out as we drone on about piano theory.

When one of my students was trying to remember which rest was a half rest or a whole rest, we came up with a silly visual trick to help her remember.

The Whole Beard (aka Whole Rest)

From that time of laughter, there was something to learn.

Doodle. Laugh. Don’t be all serious.

Humor can help you teach.

Pinterest can be a great place to save online piano teaching resources (articles, sheet music, quotes etc.) in one place.

If you aren’t familiar with Pinterest, don’t worry. It’s pretty easy. Simply sign up and then type in the search, key-words that interests you (i.e. “piano teaching”) and see what comes up.

Inspiration is out there! 🙂
