3 Ways To Get Your Kids Excited About Taking Piano Lessons

If you have a little one that’s going to be taking piano lessons soon, it’s wise to think through how you’ll continue to make this experience fun for them even when the shine of beginning lessons has worn off. Luckily, there are all kinds of things that you can do with your little one to help them feel excited about going to their piano lessons, using your rented piano at your home, and playing for themselves and others.

To help you with this, here are three ways to get your kids excited about taking piano lessons. 

Show Them Your Excitement

One of the things that you can first start with in order to help your kids get excited about playing piano is to show your excitement to them. To best do this, try to be excited about and jealous of each time they get to do anything with the piano.

When it comes time for them to practice piano at home, help this be a time that’s fun for them and something to look forward to rather than dread. When it’s time to go to their piano lessons, show them your excitement to help it rub off on them a bit. And when they have a piano recital, make sure you invite people that are important to them and get them to be visibly excited for your child as well. 

Avoid Over-Correcting Them

Something that can make it hard for your kids to want to do their piano lessons is if they feel that you over-correct them too much. While you might feel like you’re just trying to help them be the best little pianist that you can be, they might begin to feel like practicing piano at home isn’t worth it if they’re just going to be told everything they’re doing wrong the whole time.

To avoid this, try being around while your child is practicing but not being close enough that they can really hear you. This way, you won’t be tempted to correct them and will allow them to play at the level they currently are at without annoying them to progress faster than they would normally on their own. 

Appreciate The Music They Make

Although it can be hard at the beginning, if you want your child to love playing and practicing piano, you should try your best to show your appreciation for the music that they are making. 

This can be done by dancing to the music that they play, singing along to any of the simple songs that you know, clapping when they’re finished, and just being happy when they go to sit at the piano to play or practice. 

If you want to help your kids be excited about taking piano lessons, consider implementing some of the tips mentioned above.
