Have you ever thought about teaching music to preschoolers, but you’re not really sure how to get started?
Or, maybe you already teach preschool or you’re a music teacher and you’re looking for ways to branch out as teacher.
Teaching music to preschoolers is one of the most fun and rewarding jobs in the world!
When I first tried teaching piano or music to preschoolers, I made the mistake of treating them like miniature piano students. I’d get frustrated when they wouldn’t sit still at the piano or that it would take so long to accomplish simple tasks at the piano.
Then, I discovered that preschoolers are their own unique demographic of students who learn the best through playful movement, thrive on repetition and experience music very naturally and intuitively.
As I learned more and more about preschoolers and became a parent myself, I quickly fell in love with my weekly time sharing music with young children and their families.
I definitely had a lot to learn as a first started out, but I immersed myself in early childhood topics, taught hundreds of students and refined my approach along the way.
I created my online training course, Teach Preschool Music, for people just like you. For parents and teachers who love working with young children, watching them grow and learn and setting them up for success.
I have a knack for keeping things simple and I’ve streamlined every step of the learning process to make preparing to teach preschoolers fun and productive.
What Does Teach Preschool Music Teach You
Teaching music to young children is an absolute joy! It is so incredibly rewarding to get to know young children and their families and to help them fall in love with music.
I love everything I get to do in my job of running my piano studio, but my preschool music classes are always a highlight of the week. I never get tired of helping preschoolers learn and grow with music.
Adding preschool music classes to my piano studio has helped increase my income and given me a way to include my own children in my work.
While teaching preschool music is a fun job, there is definitely a lot that goes into preparing for each class and understanding the best ways to work with young children.
In this course, there are 7 modules packed with helpful information, videos, worksheets, bonus material, access to the Teach Preschool Music Course Community on Facebook and much more. It covers everything you need to get started, such as:
- Understanding child development milestones
- Learning age-appropriate activities
- Planning your own classes without reinventing the wheel
- How to sell your class to potential students
- Communicating effectively with parents
- How to run your class smoothly
- Figuring out exactly which supplies and instruments you need to get started
- How to teach music and piano-related concepts to young children
- Launching a new business
- Lesson plans for up to a full year (42+ weeks)
This course doesn’t just scratch the surface of early childhood music classes, it truly equips you to successfully launch a preschool music program.
Preschoolers need to move, have the freedom to express themselves and learn how to tap into their natural musical intuition. None of these things are possible if you attempt to teach a preschool in a tradition piano lesson format.
Over the years, I have learned a lot about teaching preschoolers. I’ve spent a lot of time refining my approach to planning and teaching preschool music classes. I have developed some simple techniques that I follow in every class to keep things simple, yet effective for young children.
I would love to share these techniques with you and give you some simple tools and resources that you can use so that you can see that preschool music classes don’t have to be complicated or elaborate. You simply have to focus on the children, encourage their need to move and lay a strong foundation for their future musical endeavors.
Who Is Teach Preschool Music For
Piano teachers, music studio owners, preschool teachers and parents of young children are all excellent candidates to teach preschool music.
While teaching preschool music doesn’t necessarily require any special degrees or certifications, preschool music teachers definitely need to be willing to put learn and adapt alongside young children, be creative and and have a nurturing and careful approach. Flexibility is vital with preschoolers! .
