An exciting week
Posted by: Sharmila Rajah, 30-Jun-2012
Ayanna has had an exciting week; one that’s been filled with plenty of activities. She started the week with her Yamaha concert, akin to a graduation concert (though on a small scale) from Book 1 to Book 2. The Yamaha system truly builds confidence in kids and nurtures a love for playing music. The kids in Ayanna’s class were so eager to perform; and they each displayed a strong sense of accomplishment at the end of it all. Each one of them had begun learning how to play with just the right hand, followed by the left and by the time Book 1 was complete, they were able to play a piece with both hands. No easy feat for these young pianists!
The importance of music
Toddlers and preschoolers have a lot to gain from listening to music. It's fun, for one thing, and it also encourages movement, which is important for young children who are perfecting their motor skills. The Yamaha system helps you bond with your child. Studies suggest that music lessons can increase brain power and the piano is a good instrument to start with.
