“When will they do their Grade 1?” 

I think we all recognise this question and we all dread it. 

But what happens when you’re a Kodály Piano Teacher?

In today’s podcast I’m going to talk about my experiences and observations getting my students to Graded exams and how parental expectations are managed.

You might be surprised! I certainly was.

Key Points:

  • Why parents ask about grades
  • What the parents really want to know
  • How the Doremi microsteps help students and parents
  • Taking the careful Doremi approach doesn't take longer
  • Where we really benefit as a Kodály piano teacher
