technique can be fun…

I know you are laughing at that – I would have as a student. But this week we are making technique a game where it earns you an actual something at the end of our lesson!Image

At the end of the lesson if I can guess correctly what technique they were showing me they earn a treat from my fun cabinet!

This can be a fun way to focus on ONE technique at a time at home too!
