I love music. I have loved music since I was so young that my Mom would put a sticker on the side of the 45 singles that I liked because I couldn’t read the song titles. When I was in middle school and part of high school, I grew in my love for music as I learned to play the flute. While I decided to stop playing after five years, I knew that when we had kids, music lessons would be something that I would want for them.
One of my favorite reasons for being able to read music is to feel more comfortable singing during Mass. I love singing as a form of worship, both during Mass and by singing on my own around the house (and in the van!). This was another reason that I wanted my children to be able to feel comfortable reading music.
With my love of music and the importance I have put on learning to read music, I was thrilled to be asked to check out the free piano lessons available on FreePianoLessons4Kids.com. Yes, the really are free, which makes me feel so excited for people who might be thinking about piano lessons for their children, but they’re just not sure. Now you can start for free right at home!
In order to get a fair assessment of how other families might feel using the free lessons at FreePianoLessons4Kids.com, I asked my husband (who has no musical background including absolutely no knowledge of the piano – not even key names) to work on the lessons with our eight year old daughter. Though she has, in the past, taken a year of cello lessons, she has only played around with our piano in a very informal way. (Our sons have just recently stopped piano lessons after four years.)
There are over 40 lessons available on FreePianoLessons4Kids.com, so your child can move far beyond simple songs like “Hot Cross Buns.” I will note that while the video lessons are totally free, we found that the printable lessons which came with activities and worksheets were an addition that we wouldn’t have wanted to do without. With these costing less than $25, that’s a great deal though, especially when you consider that we paid $20 per lesson for our daughter’s cello lessons. This is only a bit more than one lesson’s cost for the printable materials for over 40 lessons.
