Also - early on (when she first started) she would take her piano songs and her music teacher in elementary school would let her play them for the class casually. She'd ask her friends to pick what they wanted to hear and then come home and assign me with the task of finding a version that she could play. That usually involved me buying it and hand writing in the numbers of the fingers as she was still learning how to read the notes. But she got to show off at school and that made her happy. Now she's more worried about what people think about her at school (4th grade instead of 2nd grade) - she was invited to perform at a school assembly and she doesn't want too. Too much stage fear for her in front of her peers. But...her 4th grade class is learning the recorder. And because she and another student (a violin student) can read music they get to go around and help the other students. And that seems to make her feel VERY special.

Yeah, some of the kids will not be interested in learning the piano. In order to bring them to the stage of learning, first thing you have to do is own a digital piano and keep it in your hall where your kid spend most of his/her time like TV. Instead of keeping the piano in separate room, keep the instrument in the acoustic space. You too spend some of your time in piano playing with your kid, so that they too can get curious about the techniques of the play and may get inspired to learn playing the piano.


Music can be the best medicine for every broken heart.
