Take your lessons outdoors!

Spring is a wonderful time to teach music lessons outdoors! The birds are tweeting, woodpeckers are pecking, bees are buzzing!

Take your toddlers outside and encourage them to identify sounds and then compare them to musical instruments. A woodpecker sounds like a percussion instrument. Tweets sound similar to piccolo or flute.

Go outdoors and enjoy the music!

A happy student!

I’ve been taking classes with Melody Music Studios for over 2 years now, and I have been very happy. When I relocated from Atlanta to Boston, I simply spoke to Kathi and she was able to suggest us a teacher that was able to teach my son in-home, and as good as his piano teacher in Atlanta.
The thing I love with Melody Music Studios is that the teachers are active professionals, who are willing to start lessons with little kids.

Kathi’s Practice Tips for Young Kids

To parents of young children ages 5-7 taking lessons: One thing that I’ve often heard parents say is they have trouble getting their young child to practice each week for the lesson. One reason that I say only 15 minutes for the practice sessions other than what I’ve mentioned above are for mental reasons. If you tell a child they “only” have to practice for a few minutes, it doesn’t seem as difficult and they will be more apt to do that. And you never know, it may turn into more than just a few minutes. The important thing for young children is to keep the practicing element positive and don’t worry if they miss some days. Even if they’ve gone all week without practicing, they still learn during the lesson, and keeping a consistent weekly lesson is where they will learn and improve over time. Don’t expect a young child to learn a lot at the beginning, but let them learn and grow at their own pace. Once they’ve learned a few things, it will be easier for the student to practice on his/her own. Also, let the young student have the freedom to “play” around during their practicing. I’ve seen young kids “compose” little songs during the practice time, which I think is a great way for them to explore music on their own. If they enjoy doing that and are allowed the freedom, the student will eventually find practicing what they’re supposed to an easier thing as he or she develops and grows.
