Piano Lessons Update
The last two weeks I have been out of town twice, which tends to throw off the schedule a bit. Luckily my mom takes piano lessons very seriously (as opposed to my husband) and the boys all made it to classes even when I was out of town. We got a bit behind over the holidays, and practicing wasn’t our number one priority, which it should have been. We spend the first 3 weeks of January practicing lots. The trick for us was to sit down and play for a short time, and then again for anyone who was over. So Jett would play for me, grandma, each brother, and dad. Every day. It is so exciting to see him play two hands together, and two hands playing different parts. I am shocked and in awe over how advanced they have got in their lessons in such a short amount of time. I probably say that every month, but I think I am that surprised every month.
I have noticed that Jett plays 100% by memory. We worked on theory and reading the music for a while, but he has totally forgot it, and ignores it in class. This is something I am going to have to work on.
As a reminder:
The Yamaha Education Growth Initiative (EGI) is a rebate that works as a credit towards music lessons with the Yamaha Music Education System. When you purchase a new Yamaha product from now until February 28, 2015, you qualify for a lesson tuition credit towards the Yamaha Music Education System group lessons.
For example, if you were to buy a brand new Yamaha Grand Piano, you would get $500 to put towards group lessons with the Yamaha Music
Education System. There are a variety of instruments that apply, including drums, guitars, brass and woodwinds, each with their own level of rebate (details can be found in the attachment provided). With courses for anyone aged two or more with at any skill level, the timing is perfect for anyone who is considering enrolling their child at the Yamaha Music School.
