Healthy Balance Between Visual and Motor Perception.
Beginner's attention is evenly distributed between muscular and visual development throughout all modules of Soft Mozart. For development of motor skills, visual tasks are simplified and vice versa.
In the Note Duration Module your toddler receives a signal through color-coding that tells him how long to hold a key. With the development of skill of pressing and releasing a key, the color-coding is gradually removed, and the child's attention switches working on the sound of the music piece and the visual representation of the note length.
All modules of the program use interactive algorithm that reads the beginner’s reaction speed to visual images. As his coordination improves, it makes visual tasks more complex.
In the Gentle Piano Module attention is directed towards motor skills development. Here visual presentations 1 and 3 should be used, as they are easier for reading musical score.
While gradually increasing complexity of the text at level 2, 4, 5, and 6 presentations, you have to choose the piano pieces that are easier for your child’s motor skills, thus, redirecting his attention towards reading musical text through lines and spaces.
If the build-up of complexity is gradually and properly adjusted, your child will be able to choose his own workload and will be in charge of his own progress. This significantly improves the efficiency of his attention and helps reach the stage of solving super-structural problems faster.
In this process, the role of a teacher as well as of a parent is to learn to work with the student's attention instead of fighting it.
Piano Hand Position Exercises by Olga Egorova: "Rings"
This exercise creates and develops in the beginners the sensitivity of the tips of the fingers. Students should play keyboard instruments using the tips of their fingers. Exercising the tips of each finger and both hands of the student helps to catch a sense of tenacity and strength, which will improve the piano technique in the future and help in working out the clarity of the piano performance.
Bass Staff Puzzle® - keep working on the module.
