They may not always admit it, but many kids love to receive support and encouragement from a parent or grownup when they’re learning a new hobby like piano.

But “getting involved” in your child’s Simply Piano adventure doesn’t mean you have to commit to hundreds of hours of physical, emotional, or musical support along the way.

Here are a few, simple ways you can help your child get the most out of their Simply Piano journey and set them up for success:

Be their piano cheerleader!

Encouraging your child from time to time, telling them to "keep up the good work" or "try one more time" can really motivate them. This positive, criticism-free experience will boost their confidence and spur them on to impress you again and again with their playing.

Celebrate success!

Congratulate your child every time they tell you they’ve learned a new skill, completed a course, or mastered a new song. Celebrate these important milestones, recognizing the hard work and dedication they have put into their piano journey. You’ll love seeing their smiling faces every time you celebrate their latest achievement together!

Give them a stage to perform!

Encouraging your child to share their best musical moments or perform a recently-learned song for family members or friends will not only make you feel immensely proud but keep your child pumped to continue on their piano journey.

Encourage a regular practice routine

Consistency is the foundation for learning and keeping piano skills sharp. So try to gently encourage your child to commit to a regular practice schedule, even if it’s just a few times a week for 10 or 15 minutes - if they can stick to it, you’ll likely see a transformation of their piano abilities within a few weeks. And they’ll be having so much fun playing their favorite songs that you won’t have to nag them anymore to practice!

Reward them for their piano efforts

Feel free to incentivize your child along the way with small rewards and treats that recognize their great efforts in learning piano. And especially for kids, you might want to explain that the reason for these rewards is due to the hard work they’re putting into their piano journey, not just the results.

Support them when they’re struggling

Whenever your child gets stuck, it helps to remind them that this is a normal part of the learning process. This, along with a few extra words of encouragement, can quickly get them back on track. And just before they get really frustrated, you could suggest that they take a break or finish their practicing for that day, so they'll come back next time feeling refreshed. With your encouragement, overcoming these struggles will make your child a stronger, more resilient individual as they get older – just what every parent would want them to be!

You can easily transform your child’s piano journey!

In a nutshell, by adopting one or two of these simple, supportive actions, you’ll significantly increase the chances of your child becoming a competent, assured piano player, boosting their confidence and maximizing the joy they’ll gain throughout their music learning journey.

So even if it’s just a few minutes here and there to show your support or encouragement for their efforts, you’ll get so much satisfaction by “getting involved” with your appreciative child while they’re learning with Simply Piano!
