I’ve been working with visual aids as of late for the younger children. It works wonders in inspiring the child and helping them learn some of the basics quick but in a fun and exciting way. It’s interesting to note that in many classes, students who learn the piano end up just sitting in front of the instrument throughout the class. Students see how ideas are connected and realize how information can be grouped and organized. With visual learning, new concepts are more thoroughly and easily understood when they are linked to prior knowledge.
We’ve found it effective to change the learning style and environment every now and then.
In this photo, I’m working with my 4-year-old son helping him identify the notes using a large piano cut out and some smaller cards.
This is probably one of the reasons I am quite hesitant at the moment to have a fixed set of books I use which is quite a norm for many music teachers. I prefer to assess the student and find the best method to teach them his beautiful instrument.
