Main Benefits:

  • Music Improves Self-Discipline
    All it takes is a short time consistently to develop a good habit using music practice. The time should be VERY short with young children!
  • Music Increases Spacial Reasoning
    Spacial reasoning is defined as the ability to visualize with the mind's eye. In studies, the groups with piano keyboard lessons increased their spacial reasoning scores incrementally.
  • Music has the unique power to touch the soul & emotions!
    There are many studies validating the benefits of music for stress reduction and overall health. It actually affects brain functioning similar to medication in many circumstances. Read more here

We Know Homeschooling Can be Challenging!

  • I've been there
    I homeschooled our 3 sons because I knew how valuable an experience it would be for them and it was! But with 3 active boys, it was a whirlwind!
  • Limit actual video time
    Let them "play" on the keyboard, still practicing what they are supposed to, but also experiment! With a good set of earphones, they won't disturb you!
  • Set a regular time for practice
    Start with very short periods of time. If you have multiple children, have them rotate and play for each other.

What an excellent class! We are using it with our homeschool this year and my children enjoy Deborah's engaging videos. The content has been easy to understand and laid out in a way that makes them eager to work on each day. The manual provides a handy chart to check off their daily practice assignments which makes it makes it easy for me to keep track of where they are and reward them for progress made. I highly reccomend this class to anyone looking to get started with piano!
