The Friday after the U.S. Presidential election is the perfect opportunity to show this adorable photo. Four years ago, who would’ve known!
: My new OXO Good Grips 14.5″ x 21″ cutting board is “amaAAAAzing” that’s me singing the word amazing. Why, oh why have I relegated myself to such small cutting boards the last 15 years?
: I love when teachers write reflections on their piano teaching years. See Laura Lowe’s 8-points of advice from her three decades of teaching.
December is always a little crazy. I always hold a group class the week before break, which is a perfect time to give students the opportunity to perform their Christmas pieces for each other since I don’t do a Christmas recital. I also love Jennifer’s idea of holding a Christmas camp in December instead of private lessons.
: If, however, you do a Christmas recital, check out Melody Payne’s Christmas Recital Kit with beautiful invitations, and program templates.
: I’m really enjoying my first issue of Christopher Kimball’s Milk Street Magazine. The article on Carbon Steel pans has me especially intrigued. I see a purchase coming in the future. Maybe I’ll add one to my Christmas list!
: Behind the scenes, an interesting look at America’s Test Kitchen’s lawsuit against Kimball. I still love A.T.K. they’re both going to have great things to offer!
: A Dalcroze-based focus activity. I’ve not really heard of these but I hope Karen shares some more videos!
About Friday Finds
Each Friday on this blog, I share some of my favorite finds from the past week. You’ll find anything from directly piano-related resources, articles, podcasts, and music, to recipes, world-happenings, fun finds and more.
I look forward to helping you as busy teachers see what’s worth checking out and promise to try and keep it under 10 items each week!
