I have been teaching two 7 year old twins recorder for about two months. They seem reasonably able but have had a problem just sitting still and listening, with the result I waste a lot of time settling them down until they get too excited again. I even plan the lessons to be quite fun but avoiding anything that creates too much excitement. This morning they were particularly carried away and their parents confirmed what I had been thinking that perhaps teaching them together is asking for this carry on. We may try 15 minutes each next time instead of half an hour together.
Does this make sense or am I missing something?
