Pop Up Lesson and Lesson Bomb
Rochelle G., Nebraska
An idea that might be helpful, especially to those teachers in the southern hemisphere wanting to schedule a lesson bomb with Neil:
I invited students to a Pop Up Piano Lesson. This was a time outside of anybody’s regular lesson time. I scheduled a lesson bomb with Neil for that time and he lesson bombed the students that were able to join in the surprise pop up piano lesson. I chose to teach everybody an improv from the music and creativity program as my reason for the pop-up piano lesson.￼ I must admit that I called two families ahead of time to see if that time would work for them and then the next morning invited several other families. I wanted to be sure there was going to be someone there when Neil lesson bombed ;-)￼
I kept his participation a surprise.
A copy of the text I sent out:
Pop Up Piano Lesson!
Join me on Zoom at 1:15 today for a surprise piano lesson! I will be teaching a new song! The same meeting ID # will work however you will need a password￼.
If you can attend please text me for the password :-)￼
