Piano Practice Workshop for Parents

25th May 2017

 

Most parents know that practice is important. Ask any piano parent if they think their child should practice the piano at home and the answer is likely to be 'Yes.'

To support children's progress, however, is not so much about helping parents understand the importance of practice but understanding piano practice itself. Piano practice can be a mystery to parents who have never themselves played an instrument. 

Football practice? Pretty straight-forward… drop your children off at the field, cheer from the sidelines and when a great pass is made or a goal is scored, it is obvious that they are doing well. Dance practice? Again… drop your children off at the studio, peek through the viewing window and if they are in synch with the rest of the class, the likelihood is that they are doing well. But piano practice? Well that’s a different beast all together! Piano practice drop-off just doesn’t exist.

On Tuesday 23rd May the mystery was taken out of piano practice for parents with a workshop which served to ensure that help at home makes a substantial difference to children’s progress.
