When giving piano lessons to children, I usually begin by playing without musical notes. I gently prepare the way for their introduction to the “language of music”, playing popular melodies by ear, finger exercises/games, movement games, games with rhyme and meter; getting to know the keys, learning by playing, and becoming assuredly oriented with them; introduction to the names of the keys.

The first pieces already follow after the musical notes; guided finger exercises for further development of the motor skills (piano technique); instructions for practicing at home; practicing in a time-saving and efficient way, identifying/recognizing difficulties and working in a solutions-oriented way.
