Piano class has become very important for Tucker. - Amy Lofgren
Last year my son and I took piano lessons with you and we are interested in continuing our piano lessons. - Chialin Vimahi
Phoebe really just loved being taught by you. The group lessons were always fun, and a bit competitive, which kept her motivated! - Narelle Steel
We'll see you tomorrow - the kids have been practicing :) - Melesia Palu
I am impressed with my son's progress and you can take the credit. I know teaching an eight year old is not very exiting but you're good at it. - Jeff Kirko
The traditional piano lesson, with a single student and a caring teacher has no real advantage for a typical seven year-old. There is only so much a younster can absorb at a time, and they are already accustomed to doing things in groups. Once a pianist has been studying piano for more than 4 years then the advantages begin. But for so many seven to ten year-olds the piano lesson is a stressful situation which made the parent's job of keeping their child's lesson attendance more difficult. I have been teaching kids in piano classes for many years, but I taught private lessons before that. I have found that kids really enjoy the class more than a private lesson, and it has really significant advantages. Education scholars have recently recognized the benefit of what is called Social Constructivism - the learning that takes place when a student is part of a social group, like those really good school classes you remember.
Thank you so much for checking out Piano Class For Kids. I hope you make the decision to send your children to my piano class.
I do not offer the toddler recreational music classes. My piano class begins with students learning to read music the first day of class. It is generally necessary for beginning students to be able to read and write (English) before starting my piano class. The basic requirement is age seven and above, but sometimes they are ready at age six (like me!). If your child is not yet able to sit still for the 40 minute class and keep on task, then they are not ready. I have had students with Ausberger's and other more mild symptoms on the Autism spectrum, but I am not a trained psychologist or caretaker. It will be necessary for some of these students to have a caretaker present for their piano class.
