  • April 11, 2014 Fun and Motivational

    This is a fun and accessible workbook. I gave it to one of my piano students who prefers inventing little themes and motives over practicing her assignments. Creating something of her own helps her feel more accomplished. The positive attitude then carries over to her other lesson work.
