Here's a breakthrough in children's music education.
Beginning piano study with numbers instead of sheet music is a proven recipe for success for countless young students of the piano.
Much like phonics for reading, children who start with "piano by number" are more likely to go on to further musical studies, and demonstrate greater enthusiasm for the piano than children who start piano using conventional methods based solely on sheet music.
Research studies agree that piano study is an essential part of an enriched early childhood education, with findings pointing to an almost 45% leap in math scores for children who play piano even a few minutes a day.
Start with numbers, and then switch to sheet music when the child feels comfortable and confident with the geography of the piano.From the Author:
Children respond very quickly to "piano by number." It's much easier to inspire a child to try the difficulties of sheet music if they already can play dozens of fun, familiar songs "by number."
Like training wheels on a bicycle, the stickers are removed when the child feels more comfortable with the geography of the piano.
Moving slowly at first, using "piano by numbers," pays big dividends later, and produces students eager to explore and tinker with the elements of music at the piano.
Over 85% of the children who begin piano today, using one of the conventional methods, will quit within a year.
These statistics are reversed when using "piano by number" as a starting platform: more than 85% of the children who start piano "by number" are still playing happily a year later, and almost all will have moved on and made an easy transition to reading sheet music.
