Last week I welcomed my students back for the start of the fall studio term. The first lesson after a two-week break is always a bit of a toss-up. Some lessons involve students who haven't even looked at their music or even thought about piano over break, but then some lessons involve students who made the most of the extra time.
This time around, I was really really pleased to see more of the latter type of students! I had several who surprised me by taking advantage of the extra time to memorize some music, and a few of my students even composed songs during the break! Way to go! I think we're off to a great start.
We kicked off the fall practice contest last week as well, so look for some upcoming posts detailing our contest and how students did over the first week.
Anyone else out there have some success stories to share about students who took great initiative over a term break?! How about your own plans for the fall term?
