'Tis the season
Christmas is 15 days away – the Christmas tree is up along with most of the decorations! The festive season of course starts with me bringing out the Christmas resources that I have loved using over the past years and a few that I would like to explore. I realised that I get most of my Christmas resources through my membership at the Curious Piano Teachers - wonderful teaching community based in the UK, but I have tried to recommend some other resources too!
Andrea @ Wunderkeys/TeachPianoToday: Many free resources. She is so generous with her games, posters and worksheets. There is a lot, so I encourage you to explore both sites. My favourites this season have been – Christmas Teen Improv, Note Reading Wordsearch, her Wunderkeys Christmas resource guide.

Susan Paradis: When I started storing her resources, they were free to use. However, now I can see that she has a store to purchase her items – and why not? Her resources definitely add the ‘fun’ element in your lessons. Top picks – Snowman note name bingo [game], Light up the tree, Musical Christmas Lights, Ornament Notes Website: https://susanparadis.com/?s=christmas
Curious Piano Teachers: They are offering one-month free trial if you would like to check the community. I joined 3 years ago and have not regretted it one bit! Lots of resources! If that’s not possible at the moment, check out the freebie this month – Sound Story Giveaway. Really cute to use with young learners.

Nicola Cantan @ colourfullkeys: Her resources are so full of colour (as her website name)! I get most of her resources through CPT but do check out her blog for a bunch of ideas.
