Are you a music teacher who handles classes with younger batches of students? Do you want more tips in piano teaching especially the ones that are effective and useful in teaching children? Well, you’ve just landed on the right page. As this aims to reach out to music teachers of early childhood music education, this can surely be a good and a practical music teaching resource appropriate to specific learners of today’s generation.

Teaching music seems to be a very rewarding experience; thus, teaching music as well as how to play piano or any musical instruments can be such a challenging task especially if you deal with younger batches of students – toddlers and kids. It is expected that these children might lose focus and determination in whatever they do; they can easily be destructed by many environmental or physiological factors. However, as music educators, we have to get that edge in motivating and encouraging them to stay focused and possess enthusiasm that they need in learning music.

As early as a year or two, music teachers like us, together with the students’ parents, guardians, caregivers and nannies, can extend and lend a helping hand to help the children learn, appreciate and love music in their own little ways. Even in a very early age, children can process, accomplish and generate these three activities: the restoration of the natural human ability – speaking the language of music; the restoration of the natural human disposition to participate in music; and, the evolution of human full capacity to use music for personal expression, development and transformation.

With all these gifts, talents and innate skills that our young can acquire, they can simultaneously learn to integrate and express the music of their culture and tradition, highlighting and empowering the distance between the powers of development and the great wonders of music. Stimulated by their music teachers, parents and guardians, these children will be able to develop their birthright: the basic music competence. Motivated and guided by skilled, dedicated and passionate early childhood music educators, experts and enthusiasts, the musically active child can be at the heart of this renaissance in music education.

Music is indeed a gift and an ear for music is a blessing, a talent that has to be nurtured and shared. Many music and piano teachers nowadays do regard music teaching both as their passion and profession. As they devote much of their time on it and in enhancing their skills on teaching music to children aged two to seven, they need different approaches as well as innovative and interactive tips in piano teaching to make these things both achievable and effective.

Furthermore, as we make effort in meeting the needs of our younger batches of students in teaching piano and music, we also have to always remember that they are still children that have to enjoy their childhood – engaging in many recreational activities that can bring out the best and the kiddiest in them. So, let us enjoy each teaching and learning moment with our students and take each experience to the next level. Happy teaching!
