Back at the end of August, I presented a product that we were going to use in order to learn piano – Learn & Master Piano. I had promised to post at the end of September in order for you to see the progress my son and I had made with the program. Well here I am today – a month later that planned – and I want to update you on this product that will allow your child or yourself to learn piano. First, I must tell you that my oldest son is diligently learning the piano at his own pace. So far he has watched and practice for three lessons. We have not schedule this on a weekly basis but he practices regularly during a week. The main reason that it is not schedule as much as I would have hope to is that he has already a big workload with his regular lessons as well as Awana memorization. But to top it off, he went through numerous appointment in the past two months for braces and planning for a small surgery in order to remove two teeth – one being impacted. The appointments are not finished for the braces as we have five more weeks of scheduled appointments for him to go through to complete the braces installation. Nevertheless, now that the surgery is in the past, I find myself this morning in front of my computer in order to tell you more about his progress on learning the piano.
Well, Learn and Master offers a wonderful package for homeschoolers wanting to learn piano. The Learn and Master Piano is offered as a Home School Edition which makes it affordable for families. This complete 2-year piano curriculum is specifically designed for home study. It contains the complete piano course, a 68 pages teacher’s guide which includes a full 2-year scope-and-sequence as well as a DVD containing teacher’s resource. Learn And Master Piano Home School Edition has been widely recognized as the best home instruction course for learning piano available anywhere and when you see how my son is advancing in his lessons, I think you will understand why. Essentially, the program consists of 20 professionally produced DVDs, 5 Play-Along CDs, a 100+ page lesson book, and a free online student support site.
I have to admit that I like the fact that it is a completely independent learning program. My son, Alexandre, choose to do a lesson depending of his workload. Recently, as he was doing one, I decided to take some pictures in order to show you how he does it. Alexandre is thirteen years old and is currently in grade 8.
Once the DVD is in the player, the lesson starts. Alexandre has set up the keyboard in the living room. He is listening attentively while waiting for the practice part to begin.
At some point during the lesson, he sits up at the keyboard and practice at the same time as the teacher.
Here you can see him doing more practices throughout the lesson.
When we go to our homeschool coop on Wednesdays, he brings his binder of songs and practices on a full piano that is in the basement. This past week, while he was playing a lady asked me since when he was playing the piano because she thought he was playing beautifully. I looked at her and answered, “Since September really.” She couldn’t believe it. So I mentioned the program Learn & Master Piano that he was using and she thought it was interesting to have such a product on the market. She also mentioned that my son must be gifted musically which I am sure she is right because it is so easy for him to learn the guitar and the piano.
Seeing him striving in learning the piano, I know without a doubt that Learn & Master Piano is a great product to have in your home. He could easily get on the online student support line if he needs and get answers to his questions. However, he doesn’t seem to have any issue at this point in time. He would like to have a full size piano but for now he can advance quite a bit with the keyboard. Besides, when we go to coop, not only does he has a chance of practicing on the full size piano but he can experience with the pedals as well.
From our experience, I think that the Learn & Master Piano is a great product to own and would make a wonderful gift for someone who has expressed an interest in learning the piano as well. I find that this product is great for young people and adults. It could bit a bit too advanced for children.
In my next post later this month, I am planning to include a video of Alexandre playing the piano.
