By popular demand, everyone will focus on the ukulele as the main camp instrument but we will explore electric and acoustic guitar, bass, keyboards, drums and steel pans.  We encourage each child to try each instrument before spending all of their time with one. 

Our goal is to provide a professional musical environment through special tools, equipment, experience, knowledge and live examples, performances and guest speakers, where guided hands on experiences can be created along side and along with with peers in their age group, where that they can discover new likes and hidden talents while building a better more meaningful summer camp experience.

“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.

Custom Silver Spoon Slide @ Island Guitar & Ukulele Music Lesson Studio in Key West

Wayne Sorbelli here at my Island Guitar & Ukulele store in Key West where today when I opened the mail, I got a lovely gift from an online friend on a slide guitar forum I’m a member of!!  It’s an old silver spoon made into a guitar slide (or in my case, a guitar and ukulele slide since I enjoy playing slide on both instruments!)

It can be bent to fit any finger which I think is soooo cool and very practical.  Also the maker took their time to glue a piece of leather inside as to add comfort as well as grip while sliding!!

I’m learning how to slide with it now – it’s taking a little getting use to but I’m quickly getting the hand for it  –  I’ll post a video as soon as I get the unique technique down!!
