How long usually students of yours stay in Book A? About 2 months? 6 months?
How long usually students of yours finish Book A to C and move to Piano Adventure Series?
I am curious
I am considering to use MFPA for my new 4-6 years old student, and I had an interview yesterday. Parents ask me how long it takes a normal students to finish Book A, B, and C, and I do not know how to answer because I never taught in MFPA....
It really depends on the student, and the age group.
4-5 year-olds - I would say 6-8 months. Use discretion with the Writing Book; do activities in the unit first, then review and do coloring/writing. Take your time, play the CD with the lessons, do lots of repeats and reviews. Kids this age are unsure on letters, Right/Left, Up/Down, etc. Make sure they know and remember the concepts before moving on.
6-7 yrs. - They can go faster, again depending on student and grade level. I have one 6-yr. old who is racing through MFPA A and is getting ready for Level B (her mom plays and went to Julliard). Others this age seem to take about 4-6 months to get through Level A. Levels B and C have more songs, so those might take longer...
