Piano for Children

Learning the piano is one of the most amazing brain exercises a child can do. It involves the use of the left and right brain, teaches the child to count, pitch, sing, and keep rhythm.

The benefits of learning the piano are often witnessed in other activities and subjects the child undertakes.

Above all, learning to play the piano should be fun. It is essential to introduce the child to musical concepts in a creative way to encourage a life long passion and love for music.

Preparing Your Child for Lessons

The two most important things a child needs to be able to do before they attend their first lesson is:

  • Have the ability to count to 5
  • Know their alphabet A to G

Having a Piano at Home

It is not crucial that the child has access to a piano at home, since many of the teaching philosophies do not directly involve a piano. A great alternative to the piano (and often a more practical solution), is a weighted-action keyboard (as opposed to spring-action).

Parental Involvement

It is vital that parents take an active role in encouraging their child. This can be achieved by helping the child to listen to various forms of music at home, or by encouraging the child to clap, tap, dance or sing.

Your Child's First Lesson

When your child attends their first lesson, it is important that the parent(s) be present. In fact, it is preferred that parents attend as many lessons as possible, to help guide their child between lessons.

Lessons are structured so that each child:

  • Receives an exercise book with notes from the lesson (notes are designed more for the parent ,rather than the child)
  • Is encouraged to count to 5 (and eventually to 8 (octave) & 10)
  • Is encouraged to sing various tunes at home
  • Is encouraged to listen to various forms of music at home
  • Is encouraged to express music through rhythmic patterns
