3 Reasons Why You As A Parent Have To Teach Your Child To Play The Piano

When I say that you have to teach your child to play the piano, I don’t mean that you pay someone else to come and teach your child. 

Rather, I mean that YOU have to take it upon yourself to teach your child. 

Ok, ok, I can hear all the yelling and the screaming and I can hear all the excuses, but hear me out for a second. 

If you don’t have a degree in Math or Science or in Education for that matter, yet are able to homeschool your child, then why can’t you teach your child piano?


Ok, so what if you are not a homeschooling mom? 

Well, I don’t homeschool my kids in the traditional sense either, so I know what you mean and the anxiety you may have around it and about your own abilities. 

But trust me. We all have it in us. If you are capable of helping your child with homework. If you are capable of learning new things, then you are also capable of teaching your child to play the piano. 


I can also tell you right here and now, that your insecurities about teaching, will be your greatest strength and that it will serve your child, far better than any fancy pants private piano teacher you are able to afford. 


So, if you are at least partially convinced that what I say is true, then let’s get started on the reasons why YOU should teach your child piano. 


No One Knows Your Child Better Than You

Yes, that is true.

You understand your child, you know what works and what doesn’t work.

So, you can gear the teaching material to suit your child and since it will be totally one on one with you and your child, you will have enough time to customize everything to suit her needs. 


You Will Understand The Difficulty

See, this is where I think a mom who has no knowledge of music, but is learning and teaching at the same time, will have an edge over a professional teacher always. 

As a learner you will stumble just like your child and you will be able to empathize with her. 

What is even better is, that sometimes, your child may learn faster than you, and will become the teacher. 

Not only will that give her greater confidence, but it will also help her retain all that she is learning and this will become a really fun and joyous experience for the two of you. 


The Bonding Experience Will Be Priceless

Ask any parent in my Teach Your Child Piano FB group (and I have over a thousand of them), and they will all unanimously tell you that the bonding experience was priceless. 

There is something about taking a hands on, fully involved approach to your child’s education that really does that. 

The only way to experience it, is to try it for yourself. 

So, what have you got to lose? Just go right ahead and start teaching your child to play the piano, today.

My daughter loved the games, but there were also worksheets and videos. The weekly lesson plans were complete, and I never questioned what I should be doing next.

What are you waiting for?

This program reminded me (and allowed me to teach my son) how to read music. To me, that was the most important thing that we learned together. Of course, it was very rewarding for me to watch my son play the piano with both hands at the same time, while reading sheet music. His favorite parts of the course were actually playing the songs and doing the worksheets provided.
