How to Use this Curriculum:
This curriculum splits each topic up into table time, and piano time activities. Table time involves a fun way to introduce a concept to the child which will be enhanced during piano time. There will be goals identified throughout each lesson, materials needed, and notes/tips to help them learn along the way. I will constantly add new units, music sheets, game activity ideas, and videos. For premium members, if you have a specific request, please let me know and I’ll be glad to help.
Here are some tips to help you get started:
- With children under 6 years old, switching between activities is key to manage their attentiveness.
- This entire program is self-paced, so it’s okay to practice whenever desired, but I would recommend some type of routine.
- For those quick learners out there, it’s okay not to practice every activity.
- Units build up on each other. Before starting a new unit, practice a few activities from the previous unit.
- You don’t have to use each material identified at the beginning of each unit (use what you have around the house).
- I recommend having a folder for music sheets (children love to decorate the outside of the folder).
- Trace your child’s development. The units identify what to watch out for. If you notice your child has issues with previous units, incorporate them into each unit until they get a better grasp of it.
- If you are having trouble with any lesson, don’t hesitate to reach out to our learning group for assistance.
Now if you’re ready to begin, let’s start making music!
