How do I know if my child is ready to learn piano?
My child is only 3 years old, is it too early to start the piano lesson or waste of money?
Undoubtedly, these are all frequent questions asked by parents who are keen in starting their child on the piano. Well, there is no specific age to start that is ideal for everyone.
Firstly, it is important for a child who show curiosity in playing any musical instrument, singing and is happy to sit down and focus for a short time, say 15 minutes to start with.
It's a lot of easier if they know the Basic English Alphabet starting from A to G and numerical digits from 1 to 10.

The course is designed to develop the musical talents for young children, it is important to get it right from the first note.
The course impart not just the solid foundation with its early training in rhythm and notes reading, your child will enjoy making music through singing and playing.
I have to start with a premise that every student who comes to me is fully enjoy about learning piano and progress at the right pace.
As a Diploma in Early Childhood Music Teaching Specialist, I have a deep understanding and research on early childhood music planning, choice of materials and presentation. I have created a large and expanding collection of BIG NOTES sheet music called "Rainbow Piano House" which is suitable for young children.
Besides, each color represent the piano key, helping students to recognize the notes start from young age. The book is supplemental to the beginner piano music method books I use.
One of the fun iPad app I used during my lesson is Piano Maestro. The app uses the microphone to “listen” to the student playing and gives them achievement stars and points as they learn and expose to various songs and skills.
I believe that this app is a valuable tool for sight reading as well as simply increasing students' time at the piano.
