You can teach the piano to children from age 3 onwards using the Dogs and Birds method. It is not necessary to know the alphabet.
Animals symbolize the musical notes: Cat, Dog, Egg, Fish, Goose, Ant and Bird.
Learning the piano with the Dogs and Birds approach can be the perfect parent-child bonding experience. The beautifully illustrated books and animal tiles will bring you wonderful results.
You will learn to play and sing basic musical pieces, drum or tap rhythm patterns, develop hand co-ordination, establish musical beats, improvise pictures/stories on the piano, learn to make simple compositions, improve your child’s inner/musical ear, and learn to read music notation.
Day by day you will witness your child’s increasing concentration span. Learning to play the piano from an early age improves IQ, teaches co-ordination, patience and perseverance, and is also a great preparation and support for school work.
Dogs and Birds is an excellent multisensory approach which guarantees success, fun and many happy hours playing together. The beginners’ set bundle contains everything you need to get started. Click here for more information.
