hollyhock Posted October 31, 2012 Share Posted October 31, 2012 I am teaching my own boys to play piano using Piano Adventures. Since I don't teach any other kids and I can't remember what my own teacher did with me, I have a few questions for the experienced piano teachers among us. 1. At what age/level do you expect kids to learn a new song playing both hands together right away? How long can I let my son learn them hands separately? Or doesn't it matter? 2. At what age/level do you expect kids to have a pretty good grasp of the notes on the staff? When should they be able to sight-read pretty easily? My oldest son can sight-read some of his songs but others are a struggle to learn. However, once he learns them, he usually has them down in a day or two. He seems to have no problems with theory and technique exercises, so maybe I should stop thinking that I am a failure because he can't sight-read as well as I can. :tongue_smilie: 3. Is there a general age or level when it starts taking more than a week to learn a new song? He's in level 2B right now and is usually done with a new song in a week. Thanks for any input. I wish I could remember my childhood lessons a little clearer!! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
