“Is My Preschool Child Ready For PIANO Lessons?” “At What Age Can My Child Start Piano Lessons?” “How Do I Know If my Kid Is ready For Piano Lessons?” ANSWERS: LESSON READINESS CHECKLIST

Piano & Keyboard Private 1-on-1 Lessons ALL levels ALL AGES in Key West
Piano & Keyboard Private 1-on-1 Lessons ALL levels ALL AGES in Key West
“Is my preschool child Ready for PIANO lessons?” –  “At What Age Can My Child Start Piano Lessons?” and  “How old does my kid have to be to sign up for Piano Lessons?” are questions we answerer everyday here at our Key West Music Studio in the Kmart Key Plaza across from Radio Shack!!! We hope the LESSON READINESS CHECKLIST in this post helps!!
Island Guitar & Piano Music Lesson Studios wants to ensure that your young child will have a positive and successful music experience.
All children, no matter what their age, are ready for some music exposure. As infants, singing lullabies, playing music movement games and enjoying call-response sing-alongs are among the ways that your infant and toddler can begin to enjoy music with you. Being active with music will encourage your child to be actively involved with music later.
Not all preschool children are ready for piano lessons. Typically, children who are 4 years old are ready for lessons, while children who are 3½ years old may or may not be ready.
Fill out the checksheet below, or you can schedule a time with the keyboard instructor to discuss lesson readiness. If you and your child meet at least 8 of the criteria listed, then your child is most likely ready for piano lessons, will enjoy them and have great success!
If your child is not ready, remember that it is much better to wait and have a good experience later than try to rush things and have a bad musical experience.
LESSON READINESS CHECKLIST
□ Can your child count to 20?
□ Can your child recite the alphabet?
□ Can your child use a pair of scissors?
□ Does your child mostly color within the lines?
□ Can your child sit still for 10 minutes at a time?
□ Does your child’s hand measure 2¼ inches across the large knuckles?
□ Do you have an adjustable bench so that the child can sit with forearms parallel to the keyboard?
□ Has your child asked for piano or music lessons? If so, for how long?
□ Does your child pretend to play piano on objects like tables and sofa arms?
□ Does your child respond to music by dancing or singing with it?
□ Have other teachers remarked about your child’s musical interest and/or ability?
□ Are you ready to practice with your child for 20-30 minutes each day? Preschool children need adult guidance to help them practice. It isn’t until around age 8 that children can be trusted to practice their lesson assignment on their own.
□ Are you ready to commit to the costs of lessons, both in money and in time? Without your support, piano lessons are doomed.

Big stereo sound that you can take anywhere.

With its compact size and battery-powered operation, Roland’s CUBE Street was a huge hit among traveling musicians. Now, the new CUBE Street EX infuses the popular mobile amp with a huge performance upgrade that delivers more projection, more channels and more versatility. It offers 50W of power and a stereo speaker system with dual 8″ woofers, and 2″ tweeters provide clean, punchy sound for larger crowds, while four independent channels offer abundant connections for a variety of mics and instruments.

Selectable power modes provide up to 20 hours of operation with eight AA batteries, and two CUBE Street EX units can be linked together for more sound coverage if needed. And with i-CUBE LINK, you can even plug in your iPhone or iPad to play backing music and record your performances.

COSM Models
The CUBE Street EX makes it easy for guitarists to plug in and get pro sounds immediately. COSM tones for electric guitar include Lead, Crunch, and Clean, plus an Acoustic Simulator for extra versatility from a single axe. There’s also an AC preamp optimized for acoustic/electric guitar and a convenient built-in tuner. Chorus/delay and reverb effects are available as well, and these can be turned on/off with optional footswitches while performing.
