I have mentioned before that my daughter is really musical. We have a keyboard and she has been "playing" it and she really loves it. I think she is ready for some instruction. The problem is, I live in a place where the instruction is really boring and arduous without much short-term results for the kids to be proud of. A friend's kid, for example, has been taking lessons for three years but just now she is starting to play some things and she is enjoying it. I don't know what style it is but I have seen kids crying and fighting. I really don't want that.
I recently found out about Simply Music and Pianimals. I am sure there are more too. Anyone here ever try to teach their kid piano at home? I should mention that I don't play any other instrument. So, I will have to learn and practice with my children side by side.
When I brought up the idea of learning the piano, my son got interested too because he has been composing poetry and wants music to go along with it. This might be a good time for us to embark on a playful musical journey. Any suggestions for home based learning resources? I want a program where the kids start playing familiar stuff soon enough that they feel encouraged to practice and learn more. I am leaning towards Pianimals. I would love to get insight from anyone who has used it. Suggestions for other programs are also welcome. Any and all tips and conversation about music learning in general are also welcome.
Thank you in advance!
