And it is in these years that your repertoire choices for teen students are crucial.
A correctly-selected piano piece that includes opportunities for improvisation will inspire your students to practice with intensity. Using self-expression as a motivator, you can then hone in on the specific pedagogical concepts your teens need to progress as pianists.
But where do you find inspiring teen repertoire with opportunities for improvisation?
