They get 40c put into their money boxes when they can play a tune from their piano book. When they finish the whole book we cut open the money box and they get the money.
It's a new system. I was convicted at twist that I need to get our kids learning music. Unless I teach them, they won't learn how to play. I need to push through the whinge. (As a child, I was a chronic piano practice whinger. Glad my mum pressed on!)
But there is no whinge today. The kids are all very keen about the monetary rewards. And I'm exhausted. How many lessons can I teach in a 24 hour period? So far, 6. It's intense, but I'm sure it won't last. By next week I may have to raise the pay.
