Q:

Hello, I have a 4 year old autistic son and i would like him to learn an instrument, as many of the BMs had recommended, he has an amazing ear and memory, he can follow tunes after hearing them once and has a beautiful voiceand after watching a Katy Perry video about an autistic girl who learned piano and was able to express herself thru music Im very interested in finding more information about this. Do you have any experience with this type of children, and if you dont, would you be able to try to teach to one of them, and if he is not able to complete them can someone else take over the lessons, my daughter for example... thanks kindly =)

Congratulations on considering music lessons for your awesome son. I have had experience teaching autistic boys before and each one brings something new to the table for me. The spectrum of autism is so broad that we would really have to try several lessons together to discover the kind of musician he is. I would be very happy to do that work with both of you. Please let me know what you decide.

Q:

Despite not having shown much interest in our piano in the past, my 12 year old son has recently started trying to learn (via YouTube) piano music from his favourite video game series, The Legend of Zelda. He's even asked for piano lessons, yay! I'm wondering if he would be able to learn music like Zelda (and other pieces of his choice) while taking lessons with you? Thanks.

A:

This is the age when a lot of boys start to realize they can make their own music - and play what they are hearing. Music from video games is a great motivator for practicing and it's becoming more accessible. I am using some of these pieces right now with my "boys" and they are loving it!......and I am learning a lot about video games, too!

Q:

I play the clarinet and violin, and I have just started teaching myself to play the piano. I am over 60 years and I was wondering if you give lessons for that age group. Thanks

A:

Hi Clyde, We have several adult students at the studio and they all have unique musical histories. I think you will really enjoy adding piano to your list or musical accomplishments!

Q:

Will the students be taught music notes (Theory)? Is it possible to skip the notes and teach to play by ear? I'm considering this Groupon as a Christmas gift for my 3 year old and 6 year old kids. Thanks Sohani

Sohani F.  asked on  Nov 5, 2012

A:

This is a great question, Sohani. Both your children are at a wonderful age to start lessons. In the beginning, it's always best to begin to read music naturally. Our Primer course is included in the cost of the lessons and gently guides kids down the path to access all kinds of music. Of course, there will always be a strong element of eartraining. Just remember these lessons are setting the groundwork for all the ways your children will use music in their lives.
