Piano Parents Crash Course

Bridey Gibson of Pianosaurus Rex has a great Piano Parents Crash Course online course to give parents with no musical background the tools and information they need to help their child get the most out of their piano lessons.

It’s a very quick course taught with videos because we parents don’t have extra time, do we?

She even has Cheat Sheets if you need to get the info even quicker.

My Take-Away about Piano Parents Crash Course

As a music teacher, and parent of piano students myself, I whole-heartedly recommend this course to any mom or dad who never took piano lessons but is now having their kids learn piano. It will give you as the parent tools, vocabulary, and knowledge you’ll need to help your kids be successful!

And your kids will love it as well; the worksheets included have dinosaur and animal themes!

  1. I really enjoy your resources. I have used a couple of your online courses and some of the other freebies you’ve had from time to time. I have a large family and trying to get everyone lessons in certain instruments is not cost effective, but we do have a piano. I am going to give the lessons myself and the crash course will be helpful for me to get my mind in gear for the upcoming year. Thank you and thank you for the access to such a great giveaway.
