CHILDREN PRIVATE LESSONS
Children in the Hendersonville, Gallatin, Goodlettsville, Madison, and Nashville area enjoy
Recreational Music Making lessons at Wayne's Keyboard Studio because they are learning to
play their favorite songs right away.
Not every child wants to, or has the skills to become a concert pianist, accompany a choir,
play for church, or play classical music at all. Some kids love music but just want to play pop
songs that they hear on the radio, and in the movies etc., just for fun! Frankly, they need a
different approach that allows them more freedom to just play and enjoy the experience. It's
called, Recreational Music Making! They still learn basic note reading, timing, and rhythm,
but like the adult program, we focus on creative personal expression, rather than mastery and
We believe that some children need to be able to learn the basics, and as soon as possible
begin to play songs that they really want to play. This approach is similar to the approach
taken for most sports. For example if a child wants to play baseball they join Little League,
where the emphasis is on learning some fundamentals, and having as much fun as possible.
We teach using special music similar to Fake Books used by professional musicians
worldwide, but with simplified arrangements of popular pieces. Our method lays the
foundation for continuing to play just for fun, or to go on to a more traditional approach based
on interest, and natural abilities!
Some Children might see themselves more as a singer, with a desire to learn to accompany
themselves. After learning the basics, We teach a chord based approach that provides the
musical skills to form the chord and bass structure to the songs they want to sing.
Children 5 or 6 years old should have one parent sit in on the lesson for at least the first four
lessons, or longer if necessary, to be able to assist the student during the weekly practice times!
