In our studios, we start these students at 4 years old.
Preston, age 8, has been in our studio since he was 6 and already has 11 memorized “big sounding” pieces and can play more than 36 chords and us them in pieces. He is currently using Music Reading Book 2 of our series. His music reading skills, improvisational skills, and his memorized “big sounding” repertoire are all very impressive. He is just one of the students who has benefited from using our program at a young age.
Other examples are Alex and Emily and who are playing very big sounding arrangements of Chariots of fire and the original Fur Elise many months ahead of expectations.
When it comes to learning music, many researchers say, “the earlier the better!” Countless studies (over 1100 to date) have shown the benefits that studying music offers to children as their brains are developing, These benefits are realized through the actual study and development of musical skills and concepts, not just by singing or listening to music. (The difference between “spectators” and “participants”.)
We think that all children should learn music at an early age so we designed our MiniMaster program in such a way that ANYONE can teach it. Parents or teachers, regardless of whether or not they know how to play the piano or have any musical knowledge, can teach our program. The MiniMaster™ program is thoroughly scripted. The only prerequisite is that you know how to read the script! (Which is in English:)
This is the message we were presenting to the Utah Home Educators Association.
So, if you are a parent or a teacher that wants to begin teaching your children or students how to play the piano, we have the program for you!!
Request the list of concepts and skills that can be learned by your 4, 5 or 6 year old.
