How was your experience teaching your baby to play the Right hand of the 'Hot Cross Buns'?
If he/she was mostly focused on spiders and Mr. Oops, it is perfectly OK. Do you remember that kids just have to have this stage of exploring?
There are no inattentive children. There are students, however, whose attention has not yet reached the stage of solving certain super structural problems. It is our goal to determine the child’s level of attention and develop an action plan for its further progress.
As a rule, the strengths of any healthy baby are his taste, tactile and auditory perception as well as spatial orientation ability. Visual perception and speech (onomatopoeic) memory are among the first senses developed in your baby.
We have to narrow visual stimulation as much as we can and help the child to find music note on the screen, to find the corresponding key and to press it with one finger.
1. Chromatic Scale - learning to play with the Left Hand.
2. Continue to repeat the exercise "Rainbow"
3. Piano Hand Position Exercises by Olga Egorova: "Visiting hands". This exercise teaches beginners the correct distribution of muscle movements when playing with crossed arms. The sensation of lifting the arm from the shoulder when hand is transferred alternately in this or that part of the instrument is being memorized. The maintaining of the 'dome' position hands is the overdrive of this exercise. Students should continue to pay attention to this.
If your child is developing faster or slower than our plans suggest, we recommend writing to us at email@example.com to start working with our certified specialists.
