This page is for Preschool Piano Lessons that utilize the Anybody Can Play PIANO app,
which is the endlessly patient practice tutor for the student.
These lessons are appropriate for use in preschools as well as for homeschoolers and parents.

Teaching young children how to play the piano intiates tremendous brain development. The Anybody Can Play PIANO app can be used independently by a child as young as 3, so is a great practice tutor. I am now adding activity sheets and games with detailed instructions that can be used by teachers and parents for teaching additional music theory and technique. I am also putting some of these activities onto videos for YouTube, called "Tidbits" since each is a small tidbit of musical knowledge. I will add some of them to this page as well when appropriate to an activity.

When students start reading notation either with the Anybody Can Play Piano app or another way, I like to introduce simple songs that have additional variations. This gives students the impetus to move ahead in order to play the more complicated versions of the song.
