Last year, I gave my piano students a Christmas ornament that I found that had music around it. This year, I noticed that some of my beginner students are learning to play their pieces with their left hand holding their book open. They are always relieved when I clip their music open with my clothespin. I decided to make some cute clothespins for my students to hold their books open for at home!
Speaking of which, wondering what some good ideas are for gifts for your piano teacher this Christmas? Here’s my top 5 ideas for your favorite piano teacher:
- Gift card to a favorite coffee shop, restaurant, or store.
- Amazon Gift Card.
- Gift Certificate to a favorite online music store (mine is www.pianopronto.com, btw!)
- Purchase something off of the studio/piano teacher’s online wish list. Ask if they have one.
- Food item - chocolates, hot cocoa, wine, etc.
These are just some of the things I like. I’m currently building a new studio space in my home, so I would love a Home Depot card, a new doormat, really anything for the new space! Some teachers don’t care for the music themed gifts, because there’s only so many you can have, but for me, I love them so far!
