Product Review - Piano for Preschoolers

Piano for Preschoolers is a complete program for teaching your child how to play the piano, even if YOU can't.

Imagine a system, that teaches your child how to play their favorite nursery rhymes in easy, fun color-coded lessons.

Just use the included color code key chart, line it up with middle C (the book will show you how), open the song book and let your child be amazed as they play the song all by themselves.

While your child is playing the first song Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star, you could sing along and/or move your finger along the music sheet for them so they don't lose their place.

The best time for children to be introduced to the concept of learning music is between 3-10 years old.

There are 19 lessons in the book with tons of hints on how to place your hands and fingers on the keys.

Here is my 3 year old playing for the very first time.

As they progress in their training, they will learn:

  • High and low sounds
  • Beats and Measures
  • Counts
  • Notes
  • Reading music
  • Bar Lines
  • Time Signature
  • And more
After Lesson 6 there is even a "My First Piano Recital"

and after Lesson 19 an award you can fill out for completion of the program.

This is a great idea for homeschoolers, preschool parents, kids who want to learn an instrument without a parent putting loads of money into lessons to find out that the child isn't that interested.

My kids loved playing the songs. I kept the keyboard and book on the table for the kids to play with whenever they wanted them. They went to them often and loved that they could actually play the song.

It is wonderful that the lessons use songs that the kids already know. It helps with timing and rhythm.

The package of Piano for Preschoolers Basic Course - $39.95 The Basic Course includes a 17-song music book, a 17-track CD, a 19-lesson parent/teacher handbook, and two keyboard color strip guides (one for full-sized piano, and one for mini-key keyboard). Get the award-winning Piano For Preschoolers beginner piano lessons for less than the cost of one month of private lessons! Ages 3-8.

    I had something like this as a child but this one is GREAT! I like that you get a certificate. This will definitely motivate any child.
