KIDS LIKE HOLIDAY SONGS ON PIANO

The Holidays are a good time to interest a child in the piano. You don't need a big, expensive acoustic piano. An inexpensive electronic keyboard will do just fine.

Since Holiday songs are so familiar, repeated every year throughout childhood, it is easy to get a child excited about playing them on the piano.

It's important to not make the process seem like work to the child, but play. This you can accomplish by using PIANO BY NUMBER, a simple system that provides an instantly understandable and enjoyable musical language for kids.

An additional impetus for children at this time is the omnipresence of Holiday music in their lives: at school, in stores, on the radio, it is everywhere.

PIANO BY NUMBER reduces the complexity of the piano to a level that a child can readily understand: numbers. Any child that can count to ten is a candidate for the piano using this easy, child-friendly system.

And a good start leads to further interest. Any realistic view of piano lessons, long term, soon must include the fact that learning the piano takes time and effort, and if you're not having fun, the likelihood is that your child will give up and quit. 

Our suggestion is to start with numbers, establish that sense of fun, and then slowly start to introduce the elements of reading music, using a child-friendly book such as I CAN READ MUSIC.

The stumbling block is always reading music. That is the element that leads to a 90% failure rate in children's piano lessons.

But you can minimize that frustration by using PIANO BY NUMBER as a balancing element to reading music. Since children find numbers so enjoyable, it is easy to design a curriculum in which the "work" of reading music is balanced with the "play" of piano with numbers.

Most children are intimidated by piano lessons, piano teachers and reading music.

PIANO BY NUMBER is a chance for kids to take the piano on their own terms, at their own pace, exploring music like a toy.

It is far easier to interest a child in the piano if they are already having fun with it.
