5 Independent Music Teachers Forum CAPMT Communiqué 5 HOW CAN I TELL IF MY CHILD HAS MUSICAL TALENT? We hear this question just about every day from curious parents. Many tell us that they'd be much more comfortable bringing a piano into their home if they had some idea of how far their child would go with their music. 1. Piano is largely a skill and not necessarily a talent. No one who can quickly and accurately type an gets credited with being born with a talent for typing. Playing the correct notes at the correct time is a mechanical skill, which even very young children can learn. (Search child plays piano in YouTube for thousands of examples) Before the invention of phonograph and then radio, the piano was the #1 home entertainment technology of its time. Almost everyone could read music and play some piano; it was considered a very normal accomplishment for well-brought-up and well-educated children, particularly girls. No one who could competently play a song on a piano was considered particularly gifted. 2. Unlike wind, reed, brass, and string instruments, the piano is a machine that plays tones without requiring the player to have any ear for pitch (sharp or flat) or technique for intonation or resonance. In other words, once you ve learned where the notes are, you can t play them wrongly. We already know that blind people can play the piano quite well, but even a blind and deaf person can play accurately on a piano (again, search YouTube!). 3. What remains is intelligence and love of music. The good news is you win either way; intelligent children tend to do well with piano, and piano study makes children more intelligent (ask any neuroscientist). It s not hard to foster an interest in music - just bring music into your family culture in as many ways as possible. Start by singing all the time, and playing recordings in your home. If Mom, Dad, Brother, Sister, Uncle, Cousin, the neighbor, co-worker, or church friend all play on your piano, your child will wish they could do it, too. Go to see musical theater, the opera, a jazz combo, a blues band, or any live music - this inspires desire as well. 4. What if my child is unusually gifted? You ll know! The piano teacher will spot this immediately. Your child may exhibit a very long attention span for music. They may pick up basic skills very quickly. Congratulations - many gifted pianists have done very well in life; ask Harry Truman, Condoleezza Rice, Jamie Foxx, Fred Mr. Rogers, Albert Einstein, and Thomas Edison. 5. What if my child is learning normally? Congratulations! Our customers who spend $50,000 to $100,000 on their pianos are mostly physicians, attorneys, CEO s, business owners, and other successful professionals who ve played since childhood and are treating themselves and their families to a high-quality piano. Ask any high-school principal about the accomplishments of the kids who participate in the music programs like band, orchestra, and choir. 6. What if my child isn t destined to be a concert pianist, CEO of a major corporation, or President of the United States? Have you ever met an adult who didn t wish they could play a musical instrument? The gift of being able to play music for pleasure may be one of the most important we give to a child. Everyone I know who had music instruction and can still play is grateful, and likely to pass it on to their child as well!
