HOW DOES IT WORK?
Children love to play games and learn by playing. In piano group lessons, they "play and play". They play the games together in their piano class and play the games' songs on the piano.
It is a progression from the activity of playing to the sophisticated reading of music symbols.
The lessons are highly structured and organized in a sequence that directly aligns to child development milestones.
The other teacher in the piano studio is Rachel Johnson, elementary music teacher.
WHAT MAKES OUR LESSONS UNIQUE?
... and a lot more!
Small group piano lessons help to develop a well-rounded child. Students become music readers and develop other important skills such as:
Higher Order Thinking Skills
PLAY AND PLAY!
We use Play and Play piano book for our lessons. It is based upon the Kodály method of teaching. The Kodály method is a very logical way of teaching music literacy and offers the following unique features:
A successful child-developmental approach
Relates to the child's own physical and intellectual development
Follows the way a child learns naturally in a step-by-step sequence
Progresses from activities through game to song to music symbols
MURAL - TO MAKE THE LESSONS COME ALIVE!
A beautiful personalized five by seven foot mural is available to teachers. The setting of the mural relates to children. Many of the game songs and activities are depicted. It makes the lesson come alive for the children. Contact me at 337-888-0237 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about ordering your personalized mural.
