Hi. Therefore welcomed The Piano Podcast. I’m Mario Ajero. In this video, I want to show some forte-piano pieces that you could teach to young preschool children as young as age three to prepare them for traditional piano lessons. I’m hoping this video is useful to both professional piano teachers as well as mothers who only want to give their young children a head start on piano lessons. One of the first activities that you can actually do at the keyboard is to teach your kids that the piano shall be made available in two black key and three black keys. Can you play two black keys like this? Once infants can find the two black keys, you can do short rhythmic patterns alternating between the two black keys like this one. i application braced second fingers like this because most children around the age of three don’t have the individual thumb command yet to use multiple thumbs. So don’t hurry-up that part in these initial study stages.
After they are unable reiterate when you are, make sure they can play in the different octaves of the keyboard. This introduces them to transposing and proves a physical and aural the linkages between the other parts of the keyboard. after that move on to the groups of three Black Keys you might want to start with just simple up and down patterns but red-hot cross buns is probably the most accessible fragment on three Black Keys as it has no it’s going down and groups of recurred tones going up after they’ve mastered it on three Black Keys objection them to move it on to other situateds of three keys like be ang right next to it transposing to other key points reinforces the intervallic relationships among tones in music which is probably more important than reading private individuals notes themselves to other easy key areas are the EDC groups and even the be excuse me d sharp-worded C sharp-worded B groups Oh mary had a little lamb is another familiar tune that’s a little bit more complex to teach because it has more a difference in direction than red-hot cross buns teach it in small words that the young student can master first and then fragment it all together yeah by travelpod member moving students to songs that spanned more than merely the three Black Keys is easy with tunes like the first part of Old MacDonald from there you can move too familiar tunes that have jumps of like a fifth in it like twinkle twinkle little starring let “their childrens” use both hands so that he or she can more readily find the jump like this yeah as you can tell i like to play a little confidence together with the young child this acts as a motivator to have “their childrens” feel like he or she is part of a larger and fuller voicing piece of music also it helps the child get a stronger sense of heartbeat and rhythm they can simply be coral a conference that go back and forth between tonic prevailing and subdominant harmonies if “their childrens” has an older sibling that place piano then it’s a wonderful opportunity to threw them together for duet playing such as this rendition of happy birthday to be provided by Olivia reach be complemented by her brother neo yeah yeah for parents that intends to introducing these activities for their young children to start playing forte-piano make it a regular part of their your family everyday activities for example i started all my children with playing the forte-piano a little bit after dinner every time and just became a regular instance something that was expected of the children try to always be encouraging and positive with your notes towards them and the attitude towards playing the forte-piano however try to defy the temptation to bribe them with external incentives or rewards anything like that they’re the music itself should act as the motivation if we are really do well and succeed at it that’s going to be enough motivating for them to continue and excel at the piano playing and in future lessons if you have any questions regarding this or any other questions relating to the forte-piano seem free to contact me through facebook or twitter or any of the other websites the contact information is rostered at the end of this video retain flexing piano keep back yeah – bye yeah
