38- My favorite online musical learning games

When a child is learning music from home, we can’t forget about online learning games!  Let’s be honest, the kids of today are the digital generation.  Of course it depends on the parent, but kids are way are way more savvy at technology than my generation was.  With that said, you don’t want your kiddos staring at a screen all the time and play, using imaginations, and creating music without tech are equally as important. I think there’s a balance between using technology (like my Learn Piano At Home course) and in person music creation and exploration. There are so many amazing musical games and websites and your family may already have a favorite site you like to go to.  If you do a quick Google search with “kids music games” you’ll see so much come up.  In this episode, we’ll focus on musical games and I want to share just a few of my favorite ones.   For piano: https://www.funbrain.com/games/the-piano-player https://kidmons.com/game/piano-online/ Preschool: https://pbskids.org/games/music https://www.abcya.com/games/sound_burst Elementary aged kids: https://www.classicsforkids.com/games.html https://musiclab.chromeexperiments.com/ http://www.creatingmusic.com/ https://artsedge.kennedy-center.org/interactives/steprightup/whackanote/ Sign up for the Learn Piano At Home course here.

34- Yes, your child can learn piano at home

This episode is coming out after the new year, but I did that on purpose.  As you’re making your new year resolutions, maybe one of those is to have your child learn piano, but you just don’t know how to get started.  You’ve listened to a few episodes of this podcast where I talked about identifying if your child is ready and maybe they’ve been asking you to take lessons but you just haven’t signed them up for whatever reason.  Nothing will ever replace the value of in person piano lessons, but the online option is definitely a great option as well.   In this episode, I explain the benefits of having your child learn piano from your home and how it fits right into your family calendar.   Sign up for the Learn Piano At Home course here.
