For my most recent piano group lesson, we played carnival themed games with a music theory focus. I brainstormed so many different ideas that it was hard to pick just a few to squeeze within an hour! Lucky Lolly Signs - Identifying Music Symbols
Take turns naming music signs attached to the lollipop of your choice. If you name it correctly and the sucker has a colored dot on the bottom you get to keep it.
"Mistakes are a fact of life. Learning to skillfully play the piano is essentially impossible without making thousands of mistakes or maybe even a million." "Success isn't the absence of failure, but going from failure to failure without the absence of enthusiasm" -Winston Churchhill "Consider failure as a tutor, not as a tragedy." "Success is GROWING from failure to failure without the absence of enthusiasm" - Lynn G. Robbins
I loved these profound ideas from a recent inspiring message given by Lynn G. Robbins and his example of an inspiring college professor's approach to exams reflects my approach to piano theory exams.
