One of my students was obsessed with the Olympics last summer, and insisted that I rate his playing using the medal system. It's not a new idea, but I loved it, and I plan on using it again. It combines music and current events, and is a simple way of providing constructive feedback that even little kids will understand; to get the gold medal, they must do these certain things. Sometimes in music lessons, things can be too open-ended and kids aren't always aware of what is expected of them.
