A mother in Australia reported that her child is now enrolled in six different interest classes, including swimming, chess, painting, dance, and robotics.
Her child is still dissatisfied and requests that her mother continue to enroll her.
Other mothers complain that there are too many classes and that their children are exhausted.
This mother stated that her child never complained about being tired, that she had new friends, new knowledge, fun teachers, and interesting classes, and that she was always excited to attend each class.
The discovery of a child’s interest does not occur through reflection, but rather through interaction with the outside world, and we should expose our children to the world more frequently.
For a child, the world is in front of him or her, and he or she is trying to feel and move forward, with no pressure to learn in various interest classes, but rather a door to a new world.
The more contact there is, the more the child sees, and this contact will pique the child’s interest and desire to explore.
Interest classes can help your child develop a resilient character as well as a lifelong artistic literacy, in addition to opening the door to the world.
Mother Hu Ke, a textbook parenting model, once uploaded a video titled “Anji crying and playing the piano.” “We don’t need to be obsessed with the perfect outcome,” she said, “but we do need to have the character to persevere!”
In fact, this is the “essence” of the interest classes I encourage people to enroll in – sometimes the outcome of learning is unimportant, but what matters is what the child encounters during the learning process, what he or she accumulates, and how to deal with all of the difficulties encountered during the learning process.
When my 5-year-old daughter expressed an interest in learning to play the piano, I didn’t hesitate to say yes. I had in mind that I wanted to improve her ability to deal with tedious repetitive practice by putting her through a long and repeated learning process.
I wanted her to feel the sense of accomplishment that comes from learning to play a piece of music through her own perseverance and hard work.
It is preferable to tell your child a hundred lies than to accomplish a minor feat with him.
Furthermore, learning the piano is not only a skill to learn, but it is also a great help in developing her personality and brain intelligence to improve her overall ability, particularly her musicianship, which will benefit her for the rest of her life.
Learn to play the piano to improve your overall ability.
It’s difficult to find something in this world that requires a person to “multi-task,” such as playing the piano.
A good musical education for children at a young age will not only improve their musical and artistic abilities, but will also have an unspoken effect on their cultural and moral character.
Learning to play the piano entails being exposed to and reading a large number of excellent piano works, which, through long-term training and inculcation of the works, not only makes the child emotionally rich and cheerful, but also improves aesthetic skills.
People who have been playing the piano for a long time have a strong capacity for personal expression.
This is due to the fact that playing the piano requires us to be in constant contact with our inner world and to communicate our emotions and thoughts to the audience through the piano’s infinitely changing sound.
Enhances listening and hand-eye coordination
Some children struggle to find pitch when singing and listening, and especially when learning an instrument, which concerns parents when it comes to music education.
Playing the piano as a musical initiation can make children consciously feel the timbre, pitch, rhythm, and other aspects; under the stimulation of music at high and low frequencies, children will have a kind of subtle sensitivity to sound; these factors will effectively guide the development of children’s perception and hearing.
Because the ear is one of the organs that is naturally developed and trained during piano practice, the child’s sensitivity to any sound will be above and beyond the norm.
Similarly, perfect sitting posture when playing the piano necessitates a strong sense of balance and power balance. As a result, pianists must have extremely precise body coordination, not just their fingers and arms.
By practicing the piano, you can develop a strong personality.
I admire everyone around me who has lost weight because self-disciplined people can accomplish anything.
Self-control is simply the ability to manage one’s desires and emotions, as well as the ability to postpone gratification. The frontal cortex of a child’s brain does not develop until after the age of 20 due to the nature of brain development.
However, children develop the ability to learn on their own while learning and practicing the piano, beginning with self-awareness and eventually developing self-discipline through persistence in completing long-term plans.
There is no need to discuss the meaning of self-discipline or what it means to be a good writer or musician with a one-year-old child because the child is more concerned with the feelings of the moment.
It is preferable to tell your child a hundred things than to have him or her accomplish a minor feat on his or her own.
Playing the piano teaches your child to be “patient.”
Many mothers complain about their children’s impatience, particularly when their needs are not met immediately, and they can become agitated.
Aside from genetic factors, another reason could be that we grew up feeding and educating in a timely manner to meet, so how can children be patient?
When the child first began to try, the original desire to eat an apple necessitated washing and then peeling, a step not to be overlooked.
When the child realizes that it takes many days of consistent practice to jump rope 90 times in 30 seconds, he or she will be more motivated to practice.
When children realize that it takes years of study and practice to be able to play a beautiful tune with their hands,
They will understand the process’s payoff, the value of effort, the fact that there are no shortcuts to take, and the need to learn to give and wait.
Developing good study habits
People understand the importance of developing good habits, but guiding children to develop good habits is a difficult problem.
Children who learn piano usually start in preschool, and they must add a different activity to their daily life than other children, as well as be highly focused, attentive, and use their hands and brains during daily practice time.
Many children miss out on this perseverance and choose to give up in the middle.
Only those who persevere can maintain excellent life and study habits. And these habits can alter the course of their lives as well as their way of dealing with problems.
When children enter elementary school, it is naturally easier for them to enter a learning state, and they will be able to meet future learning tasks with plenty of energy, forming a habit of lifelong learning.
Encourage the development of both the left and right brains in order to improve mathematical thinking.
Many parents are now paying attention to the development of mathematical thinking, but they are unaware that it is inextricably linked to playing the piano.
According to scientific studies, piano learning is the instrument most closely associated with the development of the left and right sides of the brain in mathematical thinking, thereby developing both mathematical thinking and musical literacy.
The study was carried out with students at an elementary school in Los Angeles, California, where groups of students learned to play the piano every day at school for four months.
The researchers then tested the students’ math abilities and discovered that those who played the piano scored 27% higher than those who did not.
So, if you start playing piano in kindergarten, you’ll have a guaranteed math score in elementary school, and it’s like learning two fundamentals for the price of one!
Music, on the other hand, fosters children’s imagination and creativity.
Consider this: we adults are listening to music, the atmosphere is relatively coincidental, and it is not often associated with the memory of the depths of things? Or even a lot of images?
This sensation is derived from the musical image, which is ambiguous in nature. When children listen, sing, and play, they feel music and have a lot of imagination.
Children’s almost instinctive creative thinking is stimulated in a relaxed and enjoyable music literacy classroom.
Scientists have discovered that the high frequency band in music can effectively stimulate alpha waves in the human brain, and people with high creative abilities will be inspired and gain creativity as a result of the burst of alpha brain waves.
Today, the most important skills for parents to develop for their children’s growth are imagination and creativity!
Develop your temperament and express yourself through the sound of the piano.
Music is the art of expressing one’s emotions through the use of sound.
Music’s composition is so similar to our lives that it can easily affect our emotions. There is a musical piece for every emotion, whether it is joy, sorrow, reverence, or loneliness.
Psychologists advise us that it is preferable to hug or cry with someone who is crying rather than to give them direct “self-righteous” advice. Music is a friend who can hug you.
Allow children to enjoy music by singing songs, practicing rhythms, learning musical instruments, and so on, as all of these activities contain the expression of rich and delicate human emotions.
After learning some basic music fundamentals, children who are constantly baptized by music will naturally be able to appreciate the rhythm and emotion in a tune.
When children hear similar music, they will take the initiative to use their own musical literacy to feel; they will have rich emotions, rich expressions, and their own unique feelings; and this experience will bring them happiness.
Children who are influenced by music, as well as the roots of musical literacy, will frequently feel calm and happy, which is also conducive to their growth in the view of things in the outside world to add a beautiful feeling.
Music can nourish the souls and hearts of those who can produce many wonderful things: the way you talk, the way you look, the way you tell others how chic you are.
