Cassandra’s Pop Piano Course

Cass at her fourth pop piano lesson at Yamaha on Saturday…

 

Cass is now pretty familiar with the do-re-mis, A B Cs and counts of each note and which key on the piano representing which note.

At her 4th lesson on Saturday (14 Feb 2015), her teacher taught her to play Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and Happy Birthday without referring to any book. She can now play Happy Birthday without referring to a book (treble clef only).

We  have not bought any piano for Cass yet. Yes, my phobia of Cass losing interest in piano (just like myself) is still there and we are not buying a piano just yet. A relative is lending us her daughter’s old keyboard and we will make do with it for another 4-5 months.  I think by then, we will know if Cass still has interest in learning the piano. If her passion is still strong like she has now, we will gladly buy her a piano. It will be a sacrifice for us not only financially (RM165 per month for fees and another RM6-7k for the piano) but we will have to get rid of one of our sofa sets to make way for the piano in the living room.

Since we do not have a keyboard or piano yet, Cass downloaded a piano learning app onto her iPad and she practises on it during her free time.  Well, this is better than zilch practising right? lol!  I am glad that Cass still has this burning desire to learn the piano and I hope that the interest will never falter.

For my blog reader who left a comment in my post on Cass’ piano lesson last month, my apologies for not replying earlier as I did not have an answer for you yet. It was still too early to comment on anything back then. If you still want to find out more on which piano course best suits your child, I think the best is still to make a trip to Yamaha with your child to enquire 🙂

  1. Thanks…I was the one who left the comment so thank you for writing this post =) Looks like the teacher is teaching Cass both the solfege (Do Re Mi) and notation system (A, B, C) to read notes – that is really good. I guess she would be able to play by sight and ear. Hope she will enjoy her lessons.

    1. Hi Lyn, Cass is enjoying her lessons very much. She looks forward to each class and keeps practising on her iPad at home lol! NO piano yet, so iPad will do for the time being 🙂
