I was recently asked this question by a HomeSchoolPiano parent: “Should I force my child to play the piano?” I figured this would be a…
I'm a mom who has had kids who have taken a couple (2-3) years of private lessons already, is Homeschool Piano going to be a benefit to me? What if they've had a few (5-6) years of lessons? - DebraThe quick answer is YES, HomeSchoolPiano will be of great benefit to you and your children! See, typical private piano lessons focus solely on technique and reading music and leave it up to the student to learn improvisation on their own. This works fine for students for a while, but at some point students get bored playing only classical music. Before teaching online my private piano studio was filled with students who came from other teachers because they wanted to play stuff they knew. These students (and most of the students I teach) are interested in playing something at the piano that sounds good to their ears and is...fun! The HomeSchoolPiano 6-step cycle includes the technique and reading you'd typically find in traditional piano lessons. However, you'll also notice that students also focus their attention on rhythm, ear training, songs and improvisation. Each of the 6 units of the three HomeSchoolPiano books cover all 6 elements of our learning cycle. This means that students learn how to develop their ear, read music and create their own music and improvisations in every unit.
