"What on your playlist?"
Engaging Tweens & Teens
During Piano Lessons
Have you ever asked your tweens and teens what kind of music they listen to in their spare time?
If you haven't, trust us... you're missing out! Building rapport with this age group can be tricky sometimes, but good teachers know that it's a vital step in the learning process. Try these questions:
What's on your playlist?
What are you listening to?
What's your favorite pop song?
Simple questions like these can build rapport and are a great way to create a conducive learning environment. And let's face it: knowing the music your student is interested in is basically like having Piano Teacher Super Powers.
(Pssst... and remember, you don't have to be a "pop teacher" to do a simple I - V - vi - IV!)

It's all about connecting with your students and building a relationship!
