Layla has just turned 3 and we are just starting out. She came to choir with me until she was 2 and a half, and we go to symphony orchestra performances to watch a friend play every few months. We have now started following your music appreciation youtube videos as well. Layla loves to dance and conduct the music though she is not in time yet.
We started playing the guess key game. She can recognise all of the symbols door rain etc and says them out loud and sort of tunefully. Now that she's got the concept that we are trying not to see the spider, she is starting to get points. Yesterday she played for 3 minutes and got 51 points. She is working on Ode to Joy. So far only right hand 23 124. She lost interest very quickly. I tried flash cards to put the symbols in order but she didn't understand what I was trying to do. She put all the cards in pairs instead. She didn't want to play any of the other games yet. I'm happy with her progress for the first week.

I am sure you were listening a lot of music before she was even born and formed her musical taste then. Did you subscribe to the article about Attention Span? There is a chapter about it that our kids coming to this world being completely ready to learn music and piano. ;)

Of cause! Coordination is learning to follow the music.

Wonderful! She had to go through 'spider stage' as a child with great cognitive mind. How else she will learn the main rules of interactions in our system?

Yesterday she played for 3 minutes and got 51 points.


It is 3 min of game time or real time? For real time it is ok. For game time way too advance for her.

She is working on Ode to Joy. So far only right hand 23 124.


It seems like she needs help. Time is very high for amount of notes played. Did you try to cut the piece into smaller segments? Do you know, how to do it?

She lost interest very quickly.


You bet. The piece also is too hard for her. Try Hot Cross Buns from Introductory. Let her enjoy the sense of accomplishment!

I tried flash cards to put the symbols in order but she didn't understand what I was trying to do.


Did you sing the Song chant before doing this activity?

She put all the cards in pairs instead. She didn't want to play any of the other games yet. I'm happy with her progress for the first week.


You may ask her to pick a card for you by naming them. She may enjoy it, if every card that is properly picked will give her a 'kiss' :)
