What happens in the first piano lessons?
It goes without saying that children at different ages require different approaches. With younger kids in particular we make the first lesson light and stimulating, encouraging them to explore the full range of the keyboard, introducing the musical alphabet in a fun way, and showing them how to pick out a favourite tune or two.
Although I?m adamant that establishing an effective hand position and good sound quality are vital from the very beginning (trying to correct or amend these things later can be a torturous process!), these aspects are introduced in a natural way that appeals to the imagination of the child, according to his or her age and interests.
By the second lesson I will normally have chosen or recommended a suitable piano tutor book, so we can start to read the notes on the page. By now we have really embarked on the musical journey!
From then on we will go at a speed which encourages optimum progress without becoming uncomfortable for your child.
