Description

Parents are often hesitant to invest in long term tuition and expensive instruments before knowing if their child has the aptitude for music or will enjoy lessons.  This assessment course takes the child and parent through the beginning stages of what is required in order to learn how to play the piano.  If your child can successfully manage this course and enjoys it, then this will give you the positive encouragement to keep going.  You will be able to determine, after working through each section, whether your child has grasped each new concept and is ready to learn the language of music.

Who this course is for:
  • Parents who wish to determine if their young child (under 5) is ready to learn how to play the piano
