If your children know their alphabet and how to identify numbers and count, they’re old enough to start learning music theory. In piano even young children can learn music theory concepts on the keyboard as they develop their musical ear.
Below are twelve Music Theory concepts children learn in their first year of piano lessons.
1. Finger Numbers
2. Circle of Seconds (or Steps) - Musical Alphabet Up and Down
3. Circle of Thirds (or Skips) – Line Notes and Space notes
4. Chords – Broken Chords and Blocked, in the Key of C, F and G
5. Half Steps and Whole Steps
6. Five-Finger Scales
8. Intervals – 2nds, 3rds, 4ths, and 5ths
11. Treble Clef
12. Bass Clef
In just twelve months your child could know all these music theory concepts and a whole bunch more if you enroll them in piano lessons today. In addition to music theory first year piano students are trained in performance and artistry. Can you imagine your children playing the piano in your living room, or performing in their first piano recital? There is nothing that warms parents’ hearts more than seeing their children engaged in a creative activity that is challenging and beneficial.
Children are made to absorb language. So why not enroll your child in piano lessons while they’re young? You can’t make a better investment in their future. The benefits or piano lessons are well documented – increased math and reading scores, increased overall educational progress, and children in music lessons are less likely to engage in unproductive behaviors that are harmful to them as they grow. So don’t wait to give your children the gift of music. You’ll be glad you did.
