Many piano studios reward their students for consistent practice, completion of levels, and attendance and performance in recitals and master classes. Students earn points from each of the areas and are presented an award at the Winter and Spring recitals.
Although consistent practice and performance are vital to the development of any musician, music cannot be taught in a bubble, where students are just making and enjoying music for themselves and their parents.
That is the reason why I reward my students for sharing music with others and being involved in the world of music.
Students who play their instrument in retirement homes, school functions, share their knowledge of music with a friend, sibling or parent, or who attend music performances in their community, receive rewards, and are recognized at the Spring Recital.
Points are earned as follows:
50 points – Awarded for playing at a retirement home.
25 points – Awarded for performance in a school music -related function (talent show, for instance).
20 points – Awarded for attending a musical performance in their community (A copy of the concert or recital program is required for credit).
20 points – Awarded for every 4 lessons taught to a friend, sibling, or parent.
