1 Holiday Creative Piano Playing Activity per Lesson
As you know, I am BIG on teaching students how to play the piano creatively. The students love it, and it’s so rewarding for me as a teacher! And even first year beginners can start learning creative piano playing skills. The Valentine's Day lesson has a beginner piano composition activity. Your students will get to compose their own melody for a fun Valentine's song. The lyrics are already printed on the activity sheet, along with colorful graphics.
Playing from a chord chart is such a fun and easy way for students to learn to pay their favorite songs.
The St. Patrick's Day lesson has a super fun, simple chord song for brand new beginners about shamrocks. It uses only a simplified C chord an a simplified G chord, and your students will be able to learn it quickly.
The teacher lesson plans will guide you in teaching both the chord chart and the composition activity. You'll love seeing how fun it is to teach creative piano playing to beginners!

"Power" Practice Assignment Sheet
I know kids well--without written instructions, most will never remember what they're supposed to practice at home.
So I did all the work for you to create a Practice Assignment Sheet so that your students can practice the fun holiday pieces they learned in class.
What makes this Practice Assignment Sheet so powerful?
In addition to listing which pieces to practice, it's got detailed practice instructions that follow a proven formula.
It's also got a practice log, so that right there next to their assignment kids can record their at-home practice efforts.
If you want, you can ask kids to bring their completed practice log to the next lesson to earn points or a treat.

Q: What ages are the Valentine's and St. Patrick's Group Lesson Plans designed for?

Q: How long is each lesson?
A: There is more than enough material to fill a one hour group lesson. I wanted you to have plenty of material so that you wouldn't be left hanging. Different teachers will progress through the activities at different paces, depending on the number of students in their class, the attention span of their students, and many other factors. Feel free to select the activities that are the best fit for your students. During class, pay attention to your students’ cues to know when to move on to the next activity.
Q: How do I fit these lessons into my regular curriculum?
A: To use a holiday lesson plan, simply pause your regular curriculum for a week and insert the holiday lesson plan. Then afterwards pick up where you left off with your regular curriculum. Your students will love that you made time for some holiday fun!
Q: I don't currently teach group piano lessons, but I'd like to try it out. Can I use these holiay lessons to do so?
A: If you don't currently teach group lessons, now's the perfect time to invite all your beginner students to come to a fun group lesson Valentine's or St. Patrick's Party! You'll be giving your students a fun exprience and you'll get to "test the waters" of group teaching.
The only part of lesson plan that you'd need to modify is the "on the bench" time if you don't have multiple pianos or keyboards. If you only have one piano, you can invite multiple students at a time to play the piece on different octaves.
But as for the rest of the lesson, you're good to go! Your students will love getting to learn music and play games with friends. And you'll appreciate that you get to experiment with what it’s like to teach group piano lessons--without making a commitment until after you see how you like it.
