Creating Performing Experiences for Students


Question: If you only have one or two students, how do you create performance opportunities for them?

One of the easiest ways to incorporate learning by doing is to play with your students in lessons. Always have options for harmonizing their exercise, etude, or warm-up materials; always have a couple of duets going on in their lesson assignments; use orchestral parts with two harp parts to supplement etude study; play with them more than you play for them, so that in every lesson they are learning to play their repertoire in a performing context.
