As a music teacher, I personally have a challenge getting students to enjoy practicing technique. There is the occasional student that likes working through the many hours of technical training that are necessary in each school year. Most students would rather do something else. This post is for the majority of students that have troubles with technique, let’s make this into a fun time at our instruments and achieve greatness!
I am a personal fan of the blog Color in my Piano, by Joy Morin. She has excellent insights and a lot of great ideas in the realms of music education. She is specifically a piano teacher yet a lot of her ideas can cross over from the piano to other musical disciplines.
Recently, I found a great article in the archives of Ms. Morin’s blog that offers insights on the topic of teaching scales and technique, please view the link below and enjoy these great ideas!
