As you can see, my studio has been having too much fun with the idea of practicing everyday and everywhere: http://olsonstringstudio.com/tagged/Practice-Only-on-the-Days-You-Eat

I run a holiday challenge along these lines. My rental violas have travelled all over the world. The best so far?…. Practising the viola on the top of a mountain in Ireland, in a stretched limo in New York and with Gipsy musicians in Hungary. Music in Practice

In our annual practice contest there is a category for most unusual practice location. It’s a little more difficult with cello. There was one in a bathtub. One in a canoe alarmed me until the mother told me the canoe wasn’t actually in the water, and was being held firmly at the opposite end on the dock. Best one yet was in an outhouse!

Looks like fun! Too bad pianos aren’t portable :(
Any ideas for piano students?

Do what the rest of us do when they can’t take an instrument. We improvise. Violinists can use a stick and a cardboard box. Pianists can use a cardboard keyboard or the edge of a table. I know it’s not the real thing but it helps. Music in Practice
