As like anything, i.e. Reading and Writing if your child does not practice they can not improve, retain, learn or develop this new skill further.

Take the time to STOP and watch and listen to them play at least once a week. 

Children love to impress their loved ones and this encouragement is important in the early years of learning any new instrument.

If you get visitors, family or friends please encourage your child to play for them. This will improve your child’s confidence and also over time these guests will hear their progress.

Here is a guideline of what is expected at Piano Maestro’s with Shelley:

* Pre-Kindy / Kindy / Pre-Primary: Encourage playing / tinkering 2-3 times a week.

* Year 1 / Year 2: Encourage 5 minutes of playing 2-3 times a week (go through the pieces played in class)

* Year 3 / Year 4: By now if your child is still doing piano they are enjoying it. Their pieces are exciting and challenging. Encourage them to practice what has been asked and always feel free to try the next piece in the book.

* Year 5 onwards: Your child should be playing something everyday. Their pieces will be longer, they will have scales and warm up exercises so a lot to keep them busy throughout the week!
