Getting innovative with your lesson plans with Shanelle Rodrigues
March 25, 2022
For our second episode we spoke to the lovely Shanelle Rodrigues who is an incredibly innovative classical piano teacher. She is known for her quirky approaches to teaching not just kids but adults as well. She spoke to us very candidly about examination trends and advocating for students, because lord knows we didn't have anyone to advocate for us. She was also kind enough to put together a bunch of resources, which are below:
- https://www.playfactile.com/: For online group games! (jeopardy style)
- https://www.teachmusic.online/: Carly Walton has generously offered her course on online lessons at a ‘whatever you can afford’ rate! She also holds webinars to help with the transition.
- https://composecreate.com/: Wendy helps with studio advice during this time (business, scheduling, policies etc). She also has some nice resources such as flashcards or repertoire
- https://www.teachpianotoday.com/: Andrea has SO many games and resources to use for kids and teenagers. She has even created keyboard, staff pdfs (to use when you share screen) and virtual stickers to send out to your students!
- Music Games for Online Music Classes: Creative ideas shared by educators for continuing games online
