My mother has been the organist at our little rural church for 45 years. She started as the primary organist there when she was only 12 years old. When I was born, the pastor at the time gave my mom a congratulations card and in it was the note, "looking forward to seeing your little girl play at church just like you." No pressure there. Well, I took organ and piano lessons, but it just was never my forte. I liked my flute lessons a whole lot better. However, my piano teacher wasn't exactly inspiring either.
Fast forward to the future. I now have my own little girl who idolizes her grandma and loves to pretend play out of the hymnal. I just learned today about a new piano teaching program called "Piano for Preschoolers." The basic course sounds like an intriguing way to introduce my young daughter to piano. Who knows, maybe she'll follow in her grandma's footsteps. A little bit about it: "Piano for Preschoolers" was developed by Angie Crellin, a mother who has studied piano for 30 years. The course includes a songbook, CD, parent guide and keyboard color strips. Your child will learn to read real music notes and to play them on real keys from the very start.
Parent Reviewers blog is giving away a couple copies of the basic course: Giveaway ends Oct. 6, 2008. Click on the link below for details.
