My 11 year old daughter, Jaden, has been wanting to take music lessons for quite some time. The problem is often our already busy schedules. So we discovered a nice solution: interactive music lessons through Playground Sessions.
Interactive Music Lessons
With interactive music lessons she can take study at her own pace and when her schedule allows. Playground Sessions takes popular music and uses it to teach rhythms and demonstrate various musical concepts. YouTube sensation, David Sides sits down at his keyboard and plays along with you. Breaking down the music and fingering techniques one step at a time, David shows you how to play and offers helpful pointers.
Not only that, but we have already discovered why she should continue to take music lessons:
- Encourages confidence. Learning to play and read music is a great self-esteem booster. Being able to accomplish a few notes can be key to improving how you feel about yourself, as well teach you to communicate better.
- Teaches patience. I would be lying if I said Jaden hopped right on the piano and never had on mistake. Learning to read the music, finger the keys, and make it all come together is a process. Patience is key as you work to determine each note.
- Improves motor skills. Through the constant use of hands, arms and, sometimes feet, children can work on their motor skills. All that movement can help keep them in shape and improve overall gross motor skills as well.
- Establishes responsibility. Making sure you remember your studies, keep your keyboard clean and safe, as well as practicing and performing, helps to further promote responsibility.
Quite honesty, the benefits of taking music lessons are many. In fact, many more than listed here. Whether boosting listening skills, improving eye-hand coordination, or even learning cultural history, music can develop skills you need both on and off the computer.
