How are you doing? Do you sometimes feel tired, overwhelmed, burned out? This is exactly how toddlers may feel too. What triggers our frustration?
Our Pedagogy today:
What is FUN repetition and what is cramming? I think once and for all you have to understand the difference. It will help you to apply this understanding to all other academic activities with your child.
So, here we go:
Attention does not like inefficient projects. With each failure, the energy of attention decreases until it is completely depleted. Depletion of attention leads to frustration.
Cramming is an aggressive intervention into organic development of the energy of attention in order to achieve short-term results dictated by outside conventions.
Forcing your child to mindlessly copy achievements of another person (even you!), leveling his own progress, is as detrimental as forced blooming.
Cramming impedes natural development of the toddler's cognitive musical functions as well as weakens him physically (tense muscles) and emotionally (dependency, lack of confidence in his abilities, apathy, unwillingness to improve, low self-esteem, lack of motivation).
In order to avoid cramming, you as a parent and a teacher must respect your baby’s imperfections. It is necessary to understand that the child does not have to fit the mold. It is the your duty to develop his unique talents in the most optimal way from zero.
Reality is such that for some time your child will not play with a perfect hand, use ideal finger positioning or be able to directly control the touch quality of piano keys. All these skills as well as many others are objectively superstructural and may only become relevant once the energy of attention is freed up from solving physical problems.
1. Continue to master playing of the learned exercises: "Five Fingers", "Spookie Wind", "Chromatic Scale", "Hanon"
2. Make sure to record the process on the video or make pictures for your progress diary.
3. Learn to press 3 keys at the same time - they called "triads". We call this exercise "Three Sisters - Three Brothers" or Triads. We play it from the keys DO
If DO is blue, then we build a triad on all the "blue" keys - Do-Mi-Sol and sing a song about boys.
If DO is red, then we build triads on all the "red" keys and sing a song about girls.
Here is a video how to play triads:
Guess Key® - The final stage of work on the module. When done correctly, many children develop perfect pitch.
Be sure to share your results in the progress diary and leave a link to the video.
