THE ART OF TEACHING CHILDREN'S PIANO

Books for Younger Kids____ Books for Older Kids______Books for Adults

 

Teaching children the piano involves much more than just reading the notes.

There's much more to teaching children piano than showing them how to read the notes.

In fact, it is all the other things you do with the child BESIDES reading the notes that often determines the success or failure of your child's piano lessons.

In short, it is your manner that affects children the most, and will in fact determine their progress at the piano.

Now comes a volume that combines musical knowledge and common sense handling of children, providing guidance that any parent or piano teacher can use to improve the way they connect with children during piano lessons.

This is information that is the product of decades of teaching research.

Think of it as the "missing link" that has been left out of children's piano lessons, leading to the 90% failure rate that conventional piano lessons deliver.

You'll find hundreds of games and detailed discussions of issues such as fingering, hand position and practicing, and find ways to make your student's progress faster and with greater interest.

Children progress faster when the subject is presented in a way that not only interests them, but is allowed to be pursued on the child's terms, at the child's pace.

Only by this patient approach can the child's natural abilities be uncovered.

Discipline and strictness produce progress in less than 1% of child piano students, by any realistic estimate.

Even so, we have yet to see a child brought up on a musical diet of discipline and strictness who exhibits much joy at all in playing. What is a joyous human experience becomes a dry gladiatorial exhibition. Who cares if a child plays all the notes? As a teacher, I want to see children enjoy what they are able to do comfortably.

The only Carnegie Hall that matters is your living room.

Later, if a child wishes it, (usually when they are older) piano lessons can get more technical. This approach works wonders with children of all ages and spurs individual effort, in their own way, on a piece of music they like.

THE ART OF TEACHING CHILDREN'S PIANO is rich with professional musical experience, common sense and humor, a record of long hours spent with children, finding the key within each individual child that allows them to learn the piano willingly.
