Sometimes practicing seems long and boring. So what do we do? We bring in the bugs! Plastic bugs, that is!
Bugs can serve all kinds of purposes.
See how many you can collect if you can only collect one per repetition.
Move your favorite one across the top of the piano as you practice each song or exercise.
For a young child, the parent can hide them around the practice area for the student to find one after each song.
These are just a few ideas to help make practice time a little bit more enjoyable when everyone is getting a teeny tiny bit bored. What other ideas can you think of for using bugs while practicing?
