Piano Possibilities is 100 blog posts old! I am a BIG fan of birthdays, so rest assured I will be cozying up on my couch to celebrate with a treat as I schedule this post to launch 🙂
To celebrate with you, I’m doing a roundup up some of my favorite and the most read posts today!
Top Posts since the beginning (click on the images to bring up the post) –
This summer my students transformed into Piano Ninjas in order to work on specific piano skills and experience a more comprehensive music experience during their time off of school. Everything you need to get this rolling is FREE, and this incentive can be used during any season of the year to freshly encourage your students 🙂
Nancy Bachus was not only my college piano professor, but she was also a renowned piano pedagogue – publishing her own books through Alfred Music and traveling the world giving teacher workshops. She passed in September 2020, but her legacy lives on in the piano teaching world. Check out audio of an interview done with her shortly before the pandemic, and be encouraged in your own teaching journey!
Happening now! If you’re interested in teaching your students how to use their music to help others, this post is for you 🙂 Everything you need to get started is included for free, and can easily be edited or modified. This holiday season, my students and I will be raising money for our local food bank!
The blog began before the pandemic, but I’ve enjoyed looking back through the posts and seeing how my teaching and perspectives have changed through it all. One of my favorite pandemic projects was this past spring’s recital … it ended up being a video recital with a super fun box component that allowed each individual family to experience the recital together at home with some fanfare!
Reflections on a life well lived. My grandma died days before the pandemic shut downs hit, and although she was not a musician, she lived life intentionally and taught me many life lessons that I am grateful to be able to sit back and reflect on 🙂
I enjoyed putting together all of the resource roundups, but this one has numbers that hit the top of the charts! Lots of fun and engaging resources available here 🙂

My favorite teacher tips
Book of the Month Posts
This is by far one of my most favorite projects. You can check out reviews of some of the pretty incredible books (for student AND teacher reading) I’ve read this year below, or visit the Book Nook to check them all out in one place 🙂 If I don’t LOVE reading them, they don’t make the list 🙂
Is there anything you’d be interested in seeing in the next 100 posts? I’d love to hear your suggestions! Thank you for joining me along my musical journey … we are definitely stronger together 🙂
