teaching preschoolers

Posted by  admin  Jul 21, 2014

I have been having so much fun teaching preschoolers about their fingers and the piano and patterns!  When a child starts at three they have a lot of fine motor control to learn.  The fingers just don't do what they want yet.  So, we do wonderful finger plays to help them learn to control their fingers.  They are typically unable to keep a steady beat yet, so we work on rhythms and follow the leader clapping games.  The patterns and learning to see them and do them over again help not only learning to see patterns in the music, but will help them learn to see patterns in math problems and language skills.  All the things I teach about music also become part of the other things they will learn in these years for school.  And they are so much fun!
