Teach the Way They Learn: Teaching Piano Lessons to Students with Dyslexia
Through experience, piano teachers know that music communicates, but how much more can it communicate for the student with dyslexia. Written language is already difficult for a dyslexic child. The language of music provides a new way of communication that opens doors and tears down barriers, while motivating students. As musicians and teachers, we get the privilege in opening that new door to a student. The intention of this paper is to equip piano teachers with tools to engage a student with dyslexia in a piano lesson.
