Preschool Piano

An encouraging first experience in music lessons is critical to your child’s long term enjoyment of the piano. WunderKeys Piano for Preschoolers has been designed to be that and more!

I’m now offering one-on-one music lessons for VPK aged preschoolers! For many, this is their first experience in this type of setting. WunderKeys lessons are tailored to meet the needs of preschool-aged children and to ensure that their first music lesson experience is positive and enjoyable.

The WunderKeys method books are designed to be used in a one-on-one, 30 minute lesson setting. Each of the three method books contains 10 lessons for a total of 30 lessons. On average, it takes a child a “school year” to fully complete the program. Graduates of WunderKeys Piano for Preschoolers can move into a Primer Level piano method book.

Benefits

Numerous studies reveal the piano to be a powerful tool for developing mathematical thinking. It is relatively unknown that a “window of opportunity” exists during the preschool years when learning the piano can facilitate neural connections in the brain need for mathematical and special understanding later in life. Knowing that this window of opportunity is relatively short, and with this research in mind, the WunderKeys materials were developed to make the most of these important early years.

Your Role

The WunderKeys method books make it easy to assist your child at home even if if you have no prior musical experience yourself. The books guide you and your child through several fun activities each week designed to reinforce what was learned in the lesson ato create “bonding on the bench” time at home. You can help your child to be successful by providing a home instrument and by adding regular time at the piano into your family’s routines.

What You Can Expect

During a WunderKeys lesson your child will participate in musical activities both on and off the piano bench; created to build confidence, increase enjoyment, and solidify musical concepts. Songs, rhymes, games, and imaginative activities keep your child engaged and begging for the next lesson! Teacher/student duets allow your young child to play music from day one.

Philosophy

This is a first introduction to one-on-one piano lessons for young children. There are many concepts they need to grasp before jumping into “traditional” piano pieces. WunderKeys encourages exploration of the piano in ways that are accessible and appropriate for this age group. All lessons are geared towards having young children understand everything they need to know before learning to read notated music.

The Books

The three WunderKeys method books are full-color, story-based books filled with loveable characters and imaginative adventures. Each lesson follows a routine which includes a Rhythm Rhyme poem, exploration activities, a teacher/student duet, a math page to improve numerical understanding, and a “cut-and-play” piano game.
