Piano Classes for Young Beginners
Piano Classes for Young Beginners
Children need a fun and engaging piano program that is specifically designed with the young beginner in mind. Here at the Oakville Academy of Music our young beginners learn the fundamentals of music while at the same time learning how to play the piano. The “My First Piano Adventure” program incorporates elements of piano playing, reading, and writing in a way that is fun and accessible to early beginners. This is done with the use of games, sing a long songs and writing activities. Recent studies suggest that playing and listening to music at an early age improves:
- Learning and memory skills
- Enhanced cognitive skills
- Increased creativity
First Piano Adventure classes are private one on one lessons to allow your child to go at their own pace.
At the Oakville Academy of Music many of our teachers use “My First Piano Adventure” as the teaching curriculum for the young 4 – 5 year-old beginners for the following reasons:
- It’s a fun and well laid out piano course specifically designed for early beginners to start music studies
- Strong focus on technique embedded in the book through playful technique games, chants, and carefully-composed pieces
- The fun CD for the young student to listen, sing, tap, and play along with at the piano
- Fun and colorful artwork that keeps the children engaged in the learning material
- Effectively prepares children for private piano lessons
What will your children get from taking Piano Lessons?
There are so many reasons why a parent might sign their young children up for piano lessons. Perhaps the little ones are begging to start because their friends are learning music. Maybe they want to give their kids a well rounded education or improve their grades overall. Some parents simply want a fun and educational activity for their kids. Piano lessons can accomplish all these things but it doesn’t end there. Here are a few more benefits for children who take piano piano lessons.
1. IMPROVED FOCUS
Even at the beginner stage learning music requires focus. Children need to pay close attention to reading the notes and keeping the rhythm at the same time. This helps children learn and develop focusing skills and a fun and rewarding way that doesn’t feel like work. As they grow as musicians the piano pieces get longer and more in depth which further develops these skills.
2. BETTER GRADES IN SCHOOL
There are countless studies that show that children who take music lessons generally perform better in school. There is a strong link between math and music in particular. Piano lessons help children to better understand fundamental concepts like fractions and pattern building along with may other important aspects of math.
