Pre-School Piano Lessons at Li-San's Piano Studio combines leading educational materials to create a curriculum that is suitable for the very young pianist.

Your Child Can Learn Absolute Pitch!

We Hear and Play teaches absolute pitch (also referred to as "perfect pitch"), a skill once thought to exist only in genetically "gifted" musicians.

We Hear and Play is:
* Easily understood by teachers and parents.
* Designed as musical games, so your child will love learning music.
* Taught in Germany and Japan for over 30 years.

The most important goals of We Hear and Play are:
* Acquisition of absolute pitch
* Development of rhythmic feeling
* Introduction to piano playing, with emphasis on "good sound"

Additional goals for We Hear and Play include:
* Full interactivity with music
* Improved playing technique
* Capacity for musical expression
* Creative interplay with the piano through improvisation
* Introduction to harmony
* Ability to read and write musical notes
* Increased ability to concentrate

Give the lifelong gift of true music literacy:
- Absolute pitch is the best foundation for musical development. Just as phonemes are the basis of spoken language, pitch sounds are the basis of music. With absolute pitch, your child will have full command of the A-B-C's of musical language. We Hear and Play is the musical primer from which your child can develop a complete mastery of music-- to hear, "speak", read and write music as easily as their native language.

- Build the neural "hardwiring" for your child's success in music. Your child will learn music as a second language. As you may know, in a child's early years they are especially able to learn new languages, because their brains have not yet fixed into adult patterns of knowledge. By giving your child musical training during these most critical formative years, you literally "wire" their brain to be able to comprehend and express music as a complete language, and to have a deep appreciation of sound and harmony.

- We Hear and Play is playful and fun; it is intensive, not intense. The We Hear and Play method is based on playing educational games, not on forced repetitive drilling. Your child will want to "practice" because it is a fun activity, not a dreary chore. The We Hear and Play games are highly directed in their goals, but highly flexible in their approach, so that your child can fully express his or her imagination and creativity.

- We Hear and Play training is transferable to any instrument. We Hear and Play teaches your child to mentally "hear" the musical sounds they want to play. This way, a student is not trapped into seeing printed notes only as piano-key assignments. Instead, because they imagine the sounds, they can adjust to any instrument's fingering, "finding" the same notes in new locations.

Many people believe that this ability is innate and can't be learned. Our extensive experience shows otherwise. Some necessary conditions for learning include:

- Beginning ear training at the appropriate age;
- The use of a suitable instrument; and
- Parental cooperation in We Hear and Play training.

The piano is the best instrument for training absolute pitch. This means that parents who wish to train their child in this method must own a piano in excellent condition.

A positive atmosphere is crucial. Preschool children can only be taught if the material is made entertaining and fun, so that the children will want to play.

Specialties

Piano teacher, Li-San Ting became interested in the We Hear and Play method after reading about the early 20th century pedagogue, Evelyn Fletcher-Copp. Fletcher-Copp's approach to teaching children completely revolutionised piano teaching for young children by taking away the drudgery of learning. She achieved this through the invention of games and fun devices that helped children to visualise musical concepts and to develop a keen and accurate ear for music. Children attain perfect pitch, although this is not the ultimate goal.

The purpose of her teaching was to help children put their feelings into music, and to understand music as well as their native language. Children learn to transpose music, improvise and compose music, just as they would be expected to be able to write a short story or write a speech at school. The young students learn in groups to foster independent thinking, problem-solving ability, teamwork, a friendly competitive spirit and listening skills.
