FAQs (Children Courses)

During a trial lesson, parents and children are invited to experience a segment of the course, offering a glimpse into the teaching approach. In a lesson observation, participants witness an ongoing group session, gaining insights into the class dynamics and lesson content.

The Junior Music Course encourages parental participation as it significantly impacts a child's musical journey. Young ones often aspire to be like mom and dad, and their involvement sparks an early love for music. Parental presence fosters a sense of security and happiness in children, enhancing their engagement and learning experience. On top of that, it aids parents in guiding their children's music practice at home.

Yamaha Music School emphasizes holistic musical development for young learners. Unlike private piano lessons that focus mainly on reading and playing music, our curriculum, encompassing "listen, sing, play, read, and create," cultivates fundamental music skills effectively. While it may seem different at first, this approach lays a robust foundation for 6 to 7-year-olds, whose fingertips are rapidly developing, paving the way for solid performance skills.

Younger siblings are welcome. If they happen to become fussy or cry, parents are requested to briefly step out until they have calmed down. Our teacher will ensure close supervision during your absence.

No prior music knowledge is necessary. Please be assured that we do not ask you to do anything too difficult. The key focus is on enjoying music together with your child during the lessons.

While it might be challenging initially, children gradually adjust through group activities like singing and playing with friends. We ask that you remain patient and trust in our teachers' expertise in facilitating this transition.

In the Junior Music Course for 4-5-year-olds, homework centers on reinforcing learning through review. This involves the process of children repeating what they've experienced in the lesson. This practice aims to instill confidence and motivation for upcoming lessons and practice sessions.

While some parents may be concerned with their child's preparation, we prioritize the joy of encountering music for the first time over immediate performance. Our emphasis is on encouraging students to engage in regular reviews rather than rigorous preparation.

For children above 6 years old, establishing a home study routine, such as revisiting lesson materials and preparing for the next session, is pivotal. Consistent listening to lesson-covered songs each day contributes significantly to improvement.

We recommend acquiring an instrument upon your child's enrollment or advancement to the Junior Music Course for 4-5-year-olds. For optimal development in tone, pitch, range, and posture, a piano or Electone is preferred over a portable keyboard. For electronic piano, we recommend that you ensure that it possesses 88 keys with responsive touch and functionality

Junior Music Course for 4-5-year-olds is centered on the education of the sense of sound. Yamaha Music School places importance on the musical sense which is not only the ability to recognize the pitch and pitch of a note, but also the ability to distinguish musical expressions such as key, beat, rhythm, harmony, strength, and weakness. In Junior Music Course for 4-5-year-olds, children acquire a sense of pitch naturally and effortlessly through the process of singing the notes they hear and playing the notes they learn through singing. In Yamaha Music School, they learn to imitate and play the music they hear on the keyboard, even without sheet music.

Fundamentally, the Junior Music Course for 4-5-year-olds emphasizes a step-by-step approach: listening, singing, playing, and then confirming what has been played using sheet music. Rather than viewing notes merely as symbols, we encourage children to derive joy from visually interpreting music. This process includes tracing notes with their fingers and aligning them with the musical score. While it may require time to fluently read music, children steadily acquire this skill. Progressively, they develop an understanding of the correlation between notes and musical notation, fostering a desire to read music on their own.
