Music for Young Children

Kyle and Grace started music lessons today.  Grace will be participating in a program called "Music for Young Children" and her teacher, Miss Nancy, is the only instructor in our area that is certified to teach this international music/keyboard curriculum.  Next week, they will go together (an adult must attend with the child) and join a class of three other students.  Then, Grace will stay for another 1/2 hour of private lessons to help her catch up to her classmates who have been in the class together since September.  We tried to join this group last fall, but it was full.  Lucky for us, one child decided to drop out so we got the spot.
Grace came home with a lot of materials today and homework to do every day.  So far, I am very impressed with the child-centered methods and the fact that she played on the piano today.  I am sure we will be the proud owners of a keyboard before the weekend is over!

Grace looks like she is really interested and Kyle looks like he is ready to learn too.
