Music history encompasses studying famous composers. Choose a basic instrument your child might be interested in, like the a keyboard, and start by studying famous musicians who are known to write or perform that particular instrument. Get your child excited by listening to songs composed by those famous musicians.
Next, set aside some time for music appreciation. Compare different musicians (who you just learned about) and comment on the similarities and differences of the songs. Start to engage your learner by setting a stage for them to think critically.
Now is the time your little learner will want to see the music, so what better way then to teach them to read music! Teach the basic notes and have your child follow along with basic music. Learning to read music can be difficult, which is why a lot of musical instruments come with programs to teach music. Check out the eMedia Piano Starter Pack (save $55 + get free shipping).
Now your little musician will be so excited to start playing music!
