Today I suggest you to write a short review about your experience with my method. You may or may not publish it, but writing a small paragraph about it will help you to organize your own thoughts and observations. Think about your child before and after you started this music journey and understand how attentive you are as a parent.
Pedagogy. Today we are going to talk about the importance of the music...
When teaching a child, the best results are achieved, when he does what his parents and those around him can do and love doing. If playing the piano becomes the favorite activity of his mother and father, older brothers and sisters, then the child will also definitely be drawn to the instrument.
Our Method helps those around the child also learn music well. This is not a case of lessons, in which one learns and the others observe passively.
What is needed is that the parents make it a goal to organize the time for the whole family in such a way that playing the piano and musical games are included in family leisure time.
The parents can also follow the child's lessons and work with the same material, but it is better when they are involved in a course for adults and so keep ahead of their children.

If applicable, play the exercise from different DO (different octaves)
