Here at PianoForKids.com, we believe strongly in providing a fun and interesting
experience built on the foundation of a structured teaching method. The fun and
interesting aspect of our model keeps kids interested, and the structured method
keeps them progressing. We follow up our PianoForKids.com instruction with similar
instruction sets at PianoInstruction.com, providing quality piano instruction for all
ages and all levels of experience. Some of the parents with kids enrolled here, might want
to enroll at PianoInstruction.com. This joint participation at both levels leads to sustained
interest and growth for both kids and parents.
PianoForKids.com is a unique, fun, and easy to learn piano instruction method for kids ages 5 through 12. PianoForKids teaches piano based on Dan Delaneys experience and dedication to piano teaching and piano playing for more than 25 years.
The PianoForKids.com lessons and videos incorporate over 3 years worth of Video Piano Lessons that run on your computer over the Internet. This Piano Teaching Software method allows students to learn piano at their own pace and in the comfort of their own
home under the guidance of a professional piano teacher. The lessons include video instruction, tunes, pictures, stories, terms and symbols, and of course, quizzes.
Providing years of high quality piano instruction on the internet is not free,
and we need to charge some fees to offset those expenses. Our fee structure is designed
to be far more affordable than traditional piano instruction, so we can bring the joy of
playing the piano to far more people.
We charge $10 per month for membership with the program. For this fee, you get to participate fully in
all members area activities as well as receive 4 new lessons every month. We also have periodic promotions
like our current 3 months of PianoForKids and 3 months of PianoInstruction with CDs for $19.95.
In our teaching method, each lesson builds on techniques learned in the previous lessons. This means that the best
method for progressing with the lessons is sequentially, and we reinforce that by providing
the next four lessons in sequence every month.
Some kids may already have some piano experience when they join, and we have provided a means for determining
where they should join the course. Free lessons are scattered throughout the course that can be viewed to
determine whether that section of the course fits the experience of the student. When the child is enrolled,
the starting section can be choosen, so that lessons of the correct challenge are delivered every month.
Our lessons are made up of a tune and a duet to play, composed by Dan Delaney, along with new terms and techniques
to learn, and fun quizzes to reinforce the learning. A six minute video comes with each lesson. In the video, Dan gives the lessons the way
he would if he were in your home. The lessons can easily be printed, punched, and put in a binder so
your kid has something to take to the piano or keyboard. We have even put all the tunes on the bottom of the pages so
your childs head does not have to bob up and down to look at the score.
Our members area contains interactive games, and our PianoForKids.com community where kids can share their
experiences with other kids. The picture and story area lets kids share pictures and stories that they
create based on the tunes that they learn in the course. We have found that this keeps the kids
interested in progressing through the lessons. The creativity of the kids art when given a tune as a topic
is extraordinary. All of the artwork included with the lessons is student produced (except for a few by Dan), thanks to the
Madison Elementary School, using this technique. The thrill that a kid gets when their artwork is included
feeds back to their interest in progressing through the lessons.
We are convinced that those who try PianoForKids.com will find it the most fun and affordable way to learn piano.
To back up this conviction, we have provided limited non-member access to all aspects of our methodology so you
can see for yourself exactly what we are providing. Try it out yourself, and try it out on your kids. This is a very good way to determine whether
your kid wants to play with us.
We teach piano to more than just kids. We have a course that fits your needs, no matter what your age or experience. Take a look at Learn Piano CDs, PianoInstruction.com, Advanced Library, and Personalized Video Piano.
