Keeping the Fun in Piano Lessons: December Chocolate!


piano with Christmas book and chocolate advent calendar


December 1st has arrived!  Practicing the piano can take a back seat to other activities, especially during the busy holiday season.   Every year I purchase Advent calendars at Trader Joe’s for 99 cents a piece, and each of my piano students gets one.  Even the adults!   When the students practice the piano during December, they can open the window for that day and eat the piece of chocolate!  If they forget to play, they have to leave the door for that day closed.    When January comes, they can open the remaining doors and eat the chocolate, but only when they have practiced!

Are you beginning to feel the holiday spirit?   Pour yourself a cup of cheer and take a few minutes to enjoy the Jingle  Brothers!

UPDATE: 2014   This year I bought my calendars at World Market.  They can be ordered online.   Trader Joe’s still sells the calendars, but the designs aren’t as fun this year.  I bought the ones at World Market that are made in Germany and have child-oriented Christmas pictures on them…$1.49 each.
