Piano Parents: “15 Things You Need to Know…

…About Supporting Your Child Learning to Play the Piano”

Here’s a wonderful blog post by Elissa Milne, a fellow piano teacher whom I “met” in one of my online pro piano instructors’ groups—she’s quite a teacher, and lives in New Zealand! So cool to now have input from teachers from around the world. 🙂
She has a lot of other informative posts for parents, too, on her blog.

Summer Piano Lessons: A Break or a Time for Fun?

A fellow piano teacher, and terrific blogger, Karen Berger wrote this post on Summer Piano Lessons. It’s  a great, quick read for parents—anyone—and a good explanation of how we music teachers feel, too. All this week, I’ve been asking my students what they’d like to do this summer, to change it up, and do some projects we might not get to during the school year, and I’ll be having fun teaching them, between trips to Wingaersheek and Good Harbor, of course. 🙂
