I'm sure this isn't an original topic, but does anyone have any fresh ideas on motivating students to practice?
A few of the ideas I'm considering this fall for my studio are:
*a new song book for all students
*a treasure chest, so when a student reaches a certain goal they get to pick something
*Adding duets to their studies so they can play with me and other people
*a fall recital
*burning a few CDs of fun violin pieces to lend out
I use stickers also, but sometimes those get old.
I have a few students that are especially difficult to motivate to practice and would greatly appreciate any ideas.
