  1. This is good. I could share this with my friend so that they can decide what to do before having their kids a piano lesson.

  2. Megan,

    This is some sound advice for students. After years of teaching – both young students and adults – I find that managing expectations and keeping people engaged is a constant challenge.

    One of my techniques for keeping students engaged is to start them off with music right away. While scales and exercises can be beneficial, I find that many beginner pieces can benefit the students with the same fundamentals as exercises. It also gives them some repertoire to show off to family and friends right away!
