Giving children opportunities and encouragement to

  • experiment and learn informally on a baby grand piano
  • express themselves and develop their creativity
  • learn musical concepts and healthy piano technique to suit their age and stage
  • increase their confidence and self-esteem through a positive and interactive approach
 Some things we might do together in a session...
  • Explore the keyboard: high and low, black and white etc.
  • Devise sound effects for imaginative play and stories
  • Listen to and play notes and chords
  • Have a keyboard race with a dice, to learn the names of the keys
  • Listen to and play with word rhythms, using favourite topics
  • Learn to play some enjoyable pieces by rote
  • Read basic rhythm notation cards
  • Start learning to read music through games and other activities
  • Hold musical conversations at the piano
  • Play copying games and simple duets
  • Accompany each other with drums and other percussion
  • Learn simple songs and how to play them on the piano
  • Finger play and finger workouts to build stronger fingers for the piano
  • Start to work with piano method books such as Piano Adventures, Tales of a Musical Journey, Piano Safari etc.
...but it all depends on your child's motivation and interests
 
 Children can learn a huge amount by following their own interests,
with skilled feedback and guidance.
Wendy's Playful Piano encourages and develops their
enthusiasm, curiosity, creativity and musicality
