I frequently receive emails from piano teachers and parents of piano students from all over the world who want to know how to motivate their piano students, especially during their teenage years. They ask me for tips, suggestions, ideas, or resources to better help them inspire or motivate their piano students (or themselves) to keep playing the piano. I tell them they can visit my website at musicmotivation.com
for hundreds of FREE resources
in addition to all of the music books I have created featuring original songs I have composed for the piano. I encourage them to also subscribe to my YouTube channel: youtube.com/jeraldsimon
, and watch the hundreds of FREE video piano lessons I have on my channel in addition to receiving the new piano lessons, music videos, and COOL SONGS I come out with every month for those who subscribe to my monthly subscription club (The COOL SONGS club
). I refer to all of these resources I create as the essential PIANO FUNdamentals
(emphasis on the word FUN
- because piano lessons should, of course, be educational, but they should also be enjoyable
Even piano students who love to play the piano are continually looking for cool sounding music to keep them excited and motivated to play the piano, as well as share their love of piano playing with their families, friends, and peers. After playing my COOL SONGS, piano teachers often send me an email thanking me for creating the COOL SONGS they are teaching their students. Parents continually inform me their teen piano student is more excited about their piano lessons because of these fun piano pieces I composed, which were initially intended for the teen piano students I, myself, was teaching, who said they hated the piano and wanted to quit piano lessons. I explain in the video above how and why I began creating these COOL SONGS to motivate teenage piano students. Watch the video above!
Many teen piano students want to play cool sounding music they can share with their friends. Many want to play music that sounds like what they hear on the radio or their playlists - complete with drums, guitars, and keyboard synths. They want to play popular sounding music at their level and be able to perform this music for their peers. They want the music they play to sound cool!
If these COOL SONGS will help your piano students, or if you know other piano teachers or parents of piano students who would benefit from these COOL SONGS, please share this post with them. You can forward this email on to your family and friends or share this post on your social media pages.
