A Piano Teacher’s First Lesson Plan

Even though I’ve switched over to primarily using Piano Safari as my beginning method for new piano students, it’s still really helpful to gather other ideas and perspectives for introducing new students to piano lessons. The Fabers have put together a step-by-step First Lesson Plan for their My First Piano Adventures series. I really appreciate their emphasis on making piano lessons a multi-sensory, interactive, and enriching musical experience. It reminds me of this quote I recently came across from the renowned educator, Zoltan Kodaly:

“Often a single experience will open the young soul to music for a whole lifetime.”

What an incredible thought to keep in mind as we introduce young children to the exciting world of music!

One thought on “A Piano Teacher’s First Lesson Plan

  1. the comment that “often a single experience will open the young soul to music for a whole lifetime” is SO TRUE! When I began ballet lessons at the age of 8, I first heard classical music and have loved it ever since. I went on to become an opera lover too, and music has enriched my life in expressible ways. Thanks Dr. Holley, for your inspiring work!!!!!
