Teaching the Very Young

I have discovered over the years there many teachers who are hesitant to teach children younger than 6 or 7.  While it can be a challenge if you are not very patient and think fast on your feet, the excitement you see on those little faces are well worth it.  The key of course is to have a solid plan and be able to include body movement along with keyboard activities.  I highly recommend as series called “Music for Little Mozarts” (Alfred Publishing).  It is designed for students aged 4-8.  It captures their imagination with Mozart Mouse and Beethoven Bear.  I have been using this series since it came out in the early 2000’s.  I will also say that all of my students who started with this series, stayed with lessons though high school.  That’s a win-win for everyone.  If you are considering teaching little ones and need some guidance, don’t hesitate to contact me.  I love working with teachers!
