Meet Kara Koala and Ruby Roo. They are my practice pets. They live in my studio on top of my piano. Each week they take it in turns to go home with a different student. During that week my students will show my practice pets the cool tunes they are working on, they put on concerts, they try out new pieces and generally have a fun time. During the week, my practice pets will do what anyone else does on a holiday, they write post cards. Or as one of my students suggested, they “report back”. Here are some of the post cards I have received so far.
Each of my students have a practice pet of their own. They live on top of my student's piano and make frequent appearances in piano lessons. Some times these practice pets get left behind in my studio for the week….. oooops! Here’s Ollie. Ollie got a sneaky peek at my own weekly practice and lesson prep. We had fun too!
I look forward to getting more of your post cards soon! They look great on my studio wall!
