In the piano enlightenment stage, how can children avoid detours?
According to the research of modern life science and educational psychology, early childhood is the golden period for children to develop their intelligence and carry out music training. Children's interest in piano learning is very changeable.
Whether they can maintain a lasting interest in piano learning depends largely on whether parents are ready for their children's piano learning, in addition to the influence of factors such as children themselves and teachers. Because children at this stage are generally relatively young, their attention is not well focused, and the content of lessons may be a little confused when they go home.
At this time, parents should play the role of "teacher" at home and accompany their children in piano learning. So as parents, how can they help their children to have a good piano lesson?
First, help children find a suitable teacher
In the enlightenment stage, children have just touched the piano. It is very important to have a patient and enlightening teacher. It is said that "the master leads in the door, and the practice depends on the individual." If this door is entered in the wrong way, the latter practice must have deviated.
At this stage, whether it is the children's skills in playing the piano, such as recognizing the five-line score, touching the keys, gestures, etc., or the habit of practising the piano, teachers need to help them develop good habits patiently.
At this age, children are like a blank sheet of paper. Teachers imitate and learn everything they do. Only teachers can serve as a good example, can they teach our children better. We all know that if we want to cultivate profound knowledge, we must start with letters; if we want our children to succeed in piano learning, we must start with laying a good foundation for their piano, so we must help them find an enlightening teacher suitable for them.
As for teachers, it is also worth mentioning that children should not change teachers too often. Because every teacher has his own teaching method and style, if he changes his teacher frequently, the children need to accept the new teaching method all the time. As a result, Qin didn't learn very well and time was wasted in adapting to the new teacher.
2. Parents should accompany their children to piano lessons in person.
When a child is enlightened on the piano, parents are better able to attend the lesson in class, such as when the teacher instructs the content of the previous lesson, such as where the fingering is wrong, where the notes are wrong, parents can make some annotations to help the child correct these problems; when the teacher teaches new music, parents should also note down some key points and difficulties, the child It can also remind children to pay more attention when practising at home.
By attending classes in class, parents will know how to urge their children to practice the piano. According to the teacher's request, they will correct their children's mistakes and guide them to practice the piano in the right way. Instead of just telling the children that today you have to practice for an hour or half an hour, then sit by the piano and play the mobile phone, letting the children play the piano indiscriminately, so as to practice the piano inefficiently.
And for children of this age, with their parents accompanying them to class, his psychology will be more secure.
He feels happy to learn the piano. He can learn with his parents and experience the pain and joy of learning the piano together. He can also make his children feel the importance and concern of his parents and then study more seriously and diligently.
Of course, when the children enter the state of piano learning, parents should stop attending classes. If we stay with them all the time, the children will depend on them. It doesn't matter if I don't try to remember the key points, but my mother will tell me when I go back.
3. Parents should not be too demanding and eager to succeed
Many parents always have high demands on their children from the beginning. For example, today the teacher taught a new song. The teacher said in class that this song should pay attention to the rhythm and keep good hand shape. When the children come home to practice, they pay attention to the rhythm, and the hand shape is wrong. When the hand shape is correct and the rhythm is disordered, the parents are very anxious. They will remind this, correct that, or practice for a few days. The parents are thinking, is it not suitable for my children to learn the piano?
In fact, it is not true. Children aged 3 to 16 have not yet developed their memory. They have not been able to remember all the teachers'requirements in a short time and reflect them on their own actions. Even if it's a very simple action for adults, children need to break them down into several parts and remember them all, and then the brain controls it to complete the action. Therefore, parents should be more careful and patient when accompanying their children to practice the piano so as to help our children better.
There are also some parents, they only value the results of their children's learning. They hope that their children can learn faster and more than others when they learn the piano. They study at the same time and get higher grades than others. In order to get there, they force their children to practice all the time. Ask the teacher every three or five times, can our children go to the exam? These parents neglect the need for the learning process, only thick accumulation can thin hair. Children are still in the stage of enlightenment. Don't worry. Music is a language. By listening, thinking and practising more, things will surely come to fruition. So it is the most important thing for children to lay a solid foundation.
