So, how do you keep your kids interested in practicing piano after the honeymoon phase is over? Sometimes it’s hard for students to know just why they practice, although piano lessons have great benefit.
Here are some tips to keep piano lessons from getting boring, and to keep your kids Interested in Practicing Piano.

Did you know that we encourage technology in our music lessons? Sometimes screen time can take away from piano lessons but it can also be a unique way for students to practice reading music notes. We suggest the app Rhythm Cat- Students love it!
