Last year I started what I call Fall Studio Kickoff. Basically the first lesson back from summer is a group lesson kicking off the new school year. I noticed the first lesson back students aren’t quite into the “groove” of being back with school just getting started so I wanted to do something that would give them a week to refresh and get excited about the new school year with piano lessons.
During fall studio kickoff week, students come on their normally scheduled lesson day but at the same time (ie: 4-5:30pm). The purpose of the Fall kickoff is 3-fold. 1. To introduce the new theme for the year. 2. For students to share their summer practice prop projects 3. To kickoff the year together with their piano peers and have some fun!

I started this last year with the intention of creating excitement for what was to come for the new year. And it was a success! I recently emailed our 2012 Fall Studio Kickoff Flyer to my piano parents. This gives them the schedule information and highlights the new theme for the year. Here is a copy of this years flyer: 2012 Fall Studio Kickoff
What are you doing to kickoff the new school year in your studio?
