I started teaching my oldest daughter Audrey (now age 5) how to play a year ago, but my skills are very limited.  Then I was introduced to  It filled in the musical knowledge that I lacked and gave my children a fun new way to learn how to play.  Even if you don’t know how to play piano yourself, you can give your children Piano Lessons right at home!  Here are my favorite things about the program.

Free Piano Lessons for Kids

No Experience Needed
If you have no musical abilities, these lessons are the perfect fit.  Your children simply watch their piano teacher Mr. Hoffman on video, and then you help them practice the lesson.  Lessons are very short, allowing lots of time for practice after the video.  I love it because I have control over the pace of the lesson.  I can stop the video to make sure my children understand what is going on and I can have them watch it more than once if they are having trouble.

Covers All the Basics and More
Your children will learn all the basics including proper technique, music theory, rhythm, notation, and more.  Best of all, the lessons cover advanced concepts in a simple way to aid children in composing and improvising their own songs!

Makes Learning Fun
Lessons are interactive and include hands-on activities.  My daughters’ favorite activity is the Heartbeat Mat.  In this activity, they hit each heart from left to right on the mat for each beat in the song.  This has greatly improved my 5-year-old’s ability to keep the beat!  You’ll find more activites just like this one throughout the lessons.

  26. I normally really advocate more traditional teaching methods, but the fact that you can get all this material for free is really great. I tried this with my daughter and although she had a little bit of trouble sitting and focusing on the lessons at first, she eventually settled down and actually followed along and did well.

    It’s great that general musical knowledge is also incorporated into the program because this type of abstract thinking is really beneficial to the developing mind. Overall a great idea!

  27. If a student’s ultimate goal is to play popular music, or even to do it with classical on an equal footing, this idea that you must study classical music first is incorrect. In fact, even if one’s goal is to focus strictly on classical literature, there is great value in studying popular chord technique and improvisation. The best way to study music theory is through POPULAR music! This is because chords are presented in a straightforward manner, as chord symbols, without even having to read music!

  28. Young piano students will get used to the notion that little steps today actually prepare them for the future. The perception that not everything in life is instantaneous will be embedded in their minds.

  29. Great pianists come in all shapes and sizes. There is no preference for long slender fingers. In fact, if there were a preference, it would be tapered fingers. These are fingers that are thick and muscular at the point where they connect to the hand, but become thinner towards the tips. This allows the fingers to have strength yet can also easily fit between the black notes, when necessary. In fact, comments I’ve often heard from people who have the fabled long, slender fingers are that they make MORE mistakes, their fingers get “tied up in knots,” and that they are more prone to carpal tunnel injury!

  30. For so many people, having music in their lives means having a piano in their homes. And while the piano is beefing up your brain, it’s adding beauty to your home, joy to your entertaining and a lasting investment to your life.

  31. Looks great! When my daughter started learning, I found this article that helped her –

  32. Giving children the opportunity to participate fully in the creation of music will broaden their appreciation not only of music, but of all the arts that make up our world.

  33. Studying a musical instrument is about learning how to become good at something. There will various opportunities that their talents will be validated.
