Have You Forgotten What It’s Like to be a Child?

Yes! We have all forgotten. And because we’ve forgotten, we get easily impatient and frustrated with children. We wonder why they don’t do what we say. We get angry because we think they are defiant. We scratch our heads at the strange things they do!

But when you understand these 5 characteristics about what it’s like to be a child, you’ll understand children at a much deeper level. You’ll find yourself more understanding and patient. And above all, you’ll find yourself being able to use techniques in your piano teaching that get to the root of the issue instead of just treating the symptom!

    Wendy gets it, and I appreciate her insights and her music so much! Workshop well-worth your time and energy. I only watched it once, but I kept running it back to portions I wanted to hear again, and I took notes on the handout, too, which will help me remember key points and compositions that I particularly want to check out. Congratulations, Wendy, on another helpful resource for piano teachers!

    Wendy provided valuable information to take my teaching to another level. She knows what we already do as teachers but shows us how to be more aware of what we are doing as teachers during the lesson. We need to slow down, listen to our students, and be willing to let them direct the path of the lesson more often. The presentation was very organized and her supporting materials really helped to drive in the 5 forgotten characteristics of childhood. Thank you, Wendy!

    This workshop goes to great detail showing how children learn and the giving examples of music that incorporates this. There are videos available to demonstrate concepts. Audience participation ideas are fantastic. Everyone teaching piano needs to view this workshop.

    This is the most amazing workshop I have ever done….I have been teaching music for 40 years and constantly participate in webinars and workshops. Thank you!

    Wendy, this inspired me. I’m only in my late 20s, but I realized just how much I HAD forgotten already. I have a renewed remembrance and understanding, as well as patience. I was teaching in some of the ways that you talked about, although I definitely can improve much in several areas. Thank you, thank you! I needed this, and enjoyed it greatly.

    Thanks also for your excellent presentation. It was so encouraging to me to hear your understanding for children and what matters to them in learning to make beautiful music. I was so refreshed after seeing the way you sorted through the complexities of teaching and gave us simple principles we can all follow. Thank you!

    Thank you so much for sharing such inspiring ideas. I think we all left feeling more motivated and excited to create something fun and engaging for our students in every lesson. (This was the live version of this you presented in Oklahoma!)

    This presentation is worth coming back to more than once. Wendy helps us see what is happening developmentally with children and offers valuable tips and tricks to help teachers meet their students where they are.

    I wish I had Wendy for a music teacher when I was young but, hey! I have her now! I love all the programs and materials that Wendy has designed. She is so generous in giving over her own experience and tips so that I and my students will have more fun and be more successful. The material is current, creative, inspirational, and professionally designed with a keen understanding of children and how the learn. I so appreciate the thought and work that went into this program and at an ever so grateful for having access to the Internet! I have rekindled a love for the piano and at the same time sharing it with my own kids. Thank you, Wendy! Your light reaches the far corners of the world!
