TEACH YOUR CHILDREN PIANO

There's a reason parents send their children to someone else for piano lessons.

It's because piano teaching requires great control and discipline on the part of the teacher, and children become confused between the nurturing parent and the drillmaster piano teacher.

But this scenario assumes one thing: you have chosen the right piano teacher for your child.

The truth is that there are a lot of bad piano teachers out there, since 90% of children quit when using a conventional disciplinarian. An estimate of nine bad piano teachers for every good one seems reasonable.

The biggest problem for parents is that the almost inevitable result of piano lessons is a child who is frustrated at reading music and rebellious against mind-numbing routine. And a child in that state will not only quit piano lessons, but most likely will never try again. They have been permanently programmed to hate the piano, and you have paid for it.

The bad piano teacher poisons the well. They cannot even inspire a child to take an interest in the piano, the greatest instrument in history! Their approach is that the children's interest is irrelevant, and the only important factor is the mastery of their "method."

And why is that? Why do these piano teachers disregard the level of interest the student has?

It is because it is easier and more lucrative for them.

It is easier, because the teacher needs only to go from page to page in a text, rather than actively engaging the student with the piano on their own level. It is more lucrative to ignore the child's interest because the student is a number to them. If you have a problem with their method, they will drop you and another eager parent sends you their child for the same treatment. That's what waiting lists are for.

"There's always another six year old," is their cynical reasoning, when their real job is finding the spark within each child, no matter how petulant or sophisticated they may be.

So, if you can find that one good teacher, send your child out for piano lessons.

If not, you can get started at home. It's a safe, comfortable atmosphere, and, if you are patient and are willing to make a game of it, you will find it a far better alternative to having your child made to hate the piano by the local disciplinarian.

But keep looking for that good piano teacher.
