A child’s attention span is shorter than an adult. But they are also the ones who can easily learn more. For this reason, a child should be able to learn as many artworks and instruments as possible. You’ll never know if your child is the next pianist who’ll pave the way to be the next icon in the music industry.
Kids as kids have a lot of things to conjure their time to. They are too busy with things regarding school, playmates and playtime. It’s hard to insert even a second of your time with all these activities. Squeeze in your piano time by making a time schedule. Ponder on your child’s schedule then plan it. Be sure to give at least 2-3 times a week, 1-2 hours a day.
Instill in your child that learning the piano has its benefits. Learning any instrument doesn’t have to come out as a task or punishment. Make sure your child is having fun with every lesson. You have to think of ways to make it more enjoyable like giving your child rewards if a chord had been done correctly. Strictness during practice makes it stressful on the part of the child. He’ll start to think that piano lessons are a bore and is another chore that had to be done before the end of the day. If they fool around with the keys, don’t get mad. They’re just getting the hang of it.
You should always be there to let your child know that every lesson taught is vital. Before making your child perform and memorize a single key, make sure that you have demonstrated it first. Then let them do it. After which, ask your child to identify the keys that have been pressed. This would let them remember your lessons by the end of the day. Always praise your child for a job well done.
