I have been asked to teach two children practical musicianship - not the exams, just in general. Parents are musical and want the children to have a firm underlying foundation in music before they take on an instrument. Theey are very young (5/6), and they want to learn the Piano, but the parents want them to take a year of fun musicianship lessons first. I think it's brilliant to have such conscientious parents!
My question is really one of advice - I have not said yes to this as yet, although it would be a fun challenge for the three of us, because I wanted to make sure I knew what I was doing! Does anyone here teach musicianship to children this age and have any advice as to how to begin? I have my own ideas but would very much like some more experienced teachers in this field to point me in the right direction!
