Filling them with confidence

We love hearing about how the 40 piece challenge is changing your teaching and your students!

Carol from Victoria writes:

We started earlier this year and everyone is loving it.

It is filling them with confidence and helping them with sightreading amongst other things.

I am keeping track of what and how many pieces they play by writing down the title and adding a sticker to the page for each tune accomplished. I have also taken the liberty of giving them an even greater incentive by offering them a small trophy at the end of the year, plus something extra for the student who learns the most pieces.

I wonder how many other teachers are discovering a newfound confidence in their students?

Exams plus the 40 Piece Challenge?

A question from WA Challenge teacher, Shanti:

I come from Albany, Western Australia and love the communication via this website and the Piano Teacher Magazine.

I have a question to those who have started the 40 piece challenge.

Are your students going for exams as well as the challenge?

Thanks Shanti
