I have three piano students. Two are very energetic boys, 7 and 8. It is very hard to persuade them to practice slowly, with emphasis on accuracy. They'll both race along and guess wildly when they realize they've gone wrong. (I totally get it- I'm taking jazz guitar lessons, so the frustration of not being able to do with my fingers what I can hear in my head is fresh). Recently the kid and I happened on Despicable Me 2 on TV, and rewatched it. Today I reminded the boys of the musical puzzle scene, where Gru has to dance across a musical floor, hitting the stones in the right order to unlock a vault:

I told each boy to play his current song as if he's in that scene. Magic!
