holiday break motivation

Me: This is our last lesson for 4 weeks – can you believe it?!
Student: Oohhh. (insert sad face here)

Colored pencilsYep, that was several students’ reactions during lessons this week. No joke.
Aren’t I a lucky gal?! Now, not every musician wakes up in the morning and thinks “I need to practice as soon as possible or the world is over.” (For me it is coffee first, and then practice.) So how to keep those cellists going over this holiday season? Answer: adult coloring pages! Here’s how it works:

Each piece/etude/scale series the student practices equals 1 small area of the coloring page. Practice French Folk Song 10 times in a row? Color 10 spaces!

Even my young adult/adult students were pumped. EVERYONE loves to color.

Here are a couple free pages that are super fun from The One and Only Colouring Book for Adults:

I can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with!
