Chain Reaction

My students weren’t listening enough to their piano songs on their Suzuki CD so I told them that for every day of listening, they could add, on the day of their lesson, a loop to the paper chain in my studio. I wound it around my stairway banister, my Ficus Benjamina tree, the cactus in the adjacent dining room, the chandelier in the same room and down the banister on the opposite side of the stairway, until it had come full circle. As the chain grew, so did the number of times that my students listened per week. Below is a photo of us with our 542 loop listening chain.
