We have start the program 2 weeks ago. We start with level 1 . We practice the finger exercises and working with Gentle piano on 1 note representation. Can you have any recommendation for the album to play? Daria likes the challenge and wants to play`` Alla turca``, `For Elise``. I want to take all slowly but she not. Any advise for us?
After a week of playing with the songs ( I like this, I don't like this) I decided to start more seriously and made a journal to write the progress. I make Daria curious when I start to learn myself the esercises for the first level and then she took place at the piano and start to play. We start the first segment of the curricullum from first level .
Then we start watching the teaching videos for the introductory songs and we notice the differences of playing after that.
We play Guess Key School
This is the score for 4 dicembre : 259 at 1:59 minut

Thank you very much for sharing the videos.
Your daughter ha very good, independent, strong fingers. I like her posture.
The coordination of both hands and fingers' management are outstanding.
However, I was not able to watch White and Black cats, cause there is a video of Hanon again
It is very good that you have started to follow the lesson plans!
I wish to see the video of the songs that Daria had already learned to be able to suggest next piano pieces
Thank you very much for the videos! Now I better understand Daria's progress.
First and foremost: she has love for music, good music ear and memory.
I like her posture, fingers are strong, hand position is excellent
Piano pieces are chosen exactly for her level. She is ready to work on legato playing.
For that she has to learn how to keep butterflies on screen by connecting one music note with another.
Ask her to lift finger only after pressing the next key
Separately from this exercise, please, ask he to learn left hand and both.
If it will be too hard for her, cut the pieces in shorter segments. Do you know how?
In the piece Angels, please, suggest to play So (G) with 4th finger - La (A) will be 5th
Did you try to play with solfeggio - do re mi - symbols to incorporate voice and singing into the learning process?
Overall, the results are excellent. I am looking forward to see your further development!
I have a few questions :
1) what is the goal for the first segment of lesson plan for level 1? I mean what should know to pass at the next segment? And we should learn all song from introductory song and nursery for this level ?
2) How we should to use the First steps level 1?
3) For writing music , how to start?
4) How it should be a daily lesson for good results? Daria had days when work on piano for at least an hour and a half with pleasure , but there are days when she dont`t want to touch it... then I start to play with Gentle piano for attract her. She is a little jealous on me if I play.
