My First Piano Adventure

Robert M Sides at the Arnot Mall in Horseheads, NY hosted a clinic today featuring the following regarding “My Piano Adventures” arranged by the Faber Institute.

Explore the world of a 5 to 6 year-old, where fun motivates play, and play is the child’s magic formula for learning. Through songs, games, and engaging pedagogy for the young beginner, the My First Piano Adventure® course shapes the small hand for good piano technique, builds rhythm skill, and develops especially strong music readers.

We also learned about the new Piano Adventures® Player app!  This app is going to be aMAzing!  I can’t wait to use it.
