I don't, but then I'm not a piano teacher, so that works out. laugh


Piano self teaching on and off from 2002-2008. Took piano instruction from Nov 2008- Feb 2011. Took guitar instruction Feb 2011-Jul 2013. Can't play either. Living, breathing proof some people aren't cut out to make music.

Yes--I always give my teachers a gift, sometimes based on their non-musical interests, though often a gift card from a music or book store. I avoid food gifts, and only will give alcohol if I learn that the teacher does drink alcohol, and none of my teachers do, otherwise I might have gotten a bottle of Mozart Liqueur for the ones who do.

My piano teacher I've studied with for almost 4 months now has really changed my playing, he's helped me so much with my confidence at the piano, and has taught be a never of useful practice strategies and playing techniques that have just led to the pieces sounding so much better!

A gift card to Starbucks or perhaps a place of local interest.

Thank you everyone for your suggestions! I decided to give my teacher a Barnes and Noble gift certificate and she really was pleased with it. Her gift to me was "Elite Syncopations" by Joplin and a music themed pen. Cool. One of my goals when I started playing was to learn to play "The Entertainer" and "Elite Syncopations" is a good piece to get me started with Joplin. Happy Holidays everyone!

Hi Foxyw,
That was a good idea and very thoughtful of your teacher to get that book for you.

I ended up getting my teacher a book. I thought it would be good for her to take on her trip to read on the flight. She was thrilled.
Happy Holidays.

My Christmas gift went over really well.

I called her this morning and she had just opened it and was thrilled with it. She was describing a little ginger bread house that came in the tin with hansel and gretel running away while the witch looked out the window.

It's a beautiful tin filled with german pastries made with ginger. She loves ginger.

It just made my day to hear how thrilled she was. She was like a little kid laugh God Bless her she's 73 and does so much for everybody else.

Kymber and Oxfords Gals - so glad to hear that your teachers were pleased with their gifts. It's wonderful to have this web site to share our piano stories and ideas.

Oxfords Gals - thank you for including the link to GermanDeli.com. I used to work for a company whose main offices are based in Europe and I was fortunate to have the opportunity to travel to Germany many times over the years. I always enjoyed my visits during the Christmas season the most and especially enjoyed the Christmas cookies and treats. Many of them are available through this web site.

My son who teaches received 2 six packs of beer from one of his young students. LOL! He's been laughing about that ever since. (And loved the gift, btw)
