Musical workshops – Getting ready for the piano class

Building a positive association with music and piano is a very sensitive matter.

For kids below 6 years old, it is crucial not to `rush things` about learning the piano (it is only possible to keep their concentration for 10 minutes straight). Choosing the right time and preparatory steps would help students learn faster and enjoy the experience simultaneously.

Before joining my piano class, students younger than 6 must have some prior experience through musical workshops with lots of physical movement and sensory experience. Exceptions are those kids whose parents are musicians – they are subconsciously prepared through their environment and can stay much longer focused during class.
