Imagine it’s time for your Wednesday afternoon student and they saunter in with a big grin on their face.

```
Student: “I just heard the most amazing song.”

You: “What piece was it?” (Notice how you might intentionally change the word song to piece)

Student: “It just came out, have you heard of Billie Eilish?”

You: “Billy Eyelash? No, never heard of him – let’s hear how that G major scale is coming along!”
```

Does this scenario sound familiar?

If this sounds like you (and let’s face it, I think we’ve all been guilty of trying to get lessons ‘back on track’), let’s consider a more appropriate response:

You: “No, but I’m excited to hear it. How about we start our lesson with a little listening? Go ahead and blast it through my Bluetooth speakers!”

I’m of the belief that we should take the time to teach pop songs our students show an interest in. It’s important to show students that we can play any pop song on the piano.
