Patience, I did the index card-plan with offender #1 today and it worked brilliantly. She was cooperative as anything when she knew the game would be at the end. She still footered a lot with the footstool, so I had to take it away, then when she was uncomfortable, I gave it back and it stayed on the ground. smile

No, I never show frustration. There must be patience in learning as well as patience in teaching. I can't create a genius at the piano but I do believe I can inspire a student to play for a lifetime.

I think students are very creative. Possibly you might have a moment during a lesson where the student can create a 'new idea'. For an example.... I like practicing difficult passages backwards.....ok, I mean of course, small segments.

I have thought of using various card approaches for years. Hopefully I'll come up with something I like.
