Valentine's Day is right around the corner. Are you ready to have some fun in your studio?
This book taught me how important it is to surprise students and this post is full of ways to do just that.
To start, the picture above is simple printable that I created to give my students. Just cut the cards, tape on a candy heart or a Hershey's kiss, and you're good to go! Get it here!
More Craft Ideas
I'll be honest - I only know of a couple piano Valentine crafts. Two are from Joy Morin at Color in My Piano.
One is a piano cut-out that you can put on a box of smarties.
The other is a piano heart that I've used for several years. Here's one of my photos from a couple years ago. Kids really did like it!
