I AM INTRODUCING A NEW SORT OF EVALUATION FOR MY piano students. It’s pretty easy to assert one’s feelings towards piano and the piano class by his/her involvement and dedication, of course. But I thought of a new and fun way for them to express how they feel about it.
THE ARTS & CRAFTS PROJECTS!
They can have different topics, like “My piano class” or “My favourite song” and their task is to describe on an A3 or A2 page how they feel about, or what they like most about the topic. It can be a scheme, it can be drawings, it can be collages or a painting…it can be anything they like, they’ll have fun doing it, they’ll get to keep it and brag about it and it will only create a stronger bond if they actually get a chance to express their own feelings in their own little way.
And who knows? Maybe we’ll get to learn something new about our students through this.
