Five Helpful Resources for Suzuki Violin Teachers…
1. Coloring is all the rage these days, ride the trend by offering sharing this resource of 62 Music Themed Coloring Pages with your students.
2. There are some really great practice charts on this site, including a super cute pdf explaining the form of twinkle using a sandwich. I’ve used that analogy with my students and I’m so excited to add this great visual!
3. I love these glitter wands for beginning bow holds. Little ones will hold these wands for so long while they watch all the glitter fall to the bottom!
4. The April Book Club Book is Making Money Teaching Music, and while it is not the best music teaching business book I’ve ever read, I’m still learning a lot. It was written in 1992 so some of the information is a little bit dated, and there isn’t much about the internet at all. I laughed out loud at this quote, “If you’re young, spandex is a no-no; if you think you’re young, spandex is a definite no-no.” I may have snorted, ok, I did.
5. We made a similar game set up in my studio a few months ago using masking tape, and my students loved it! Check it out here…
This isn’t really a music teaching resource per se, but going through the Make Over Your Mornings e-course has streamlined my day, and allowed me to pursue professional goals (like starting this blog!) If your mornings feel hectic, chaotic, and out of control, this course is for you. I highly recommend it!
