Asbergers and piano lessons

by Laura

This has completely changed the way I am going to teach my children to play the piano. I have two kids with Asbergers and the things you listed are exactly the problems we had with traditional piano lessons. I had no idea it was related to the Asbergers! One will not polish his songs, it never gets better after the 4th time he plays it, and one will not play in rhythm, she likes it better her way! and if they don't like the song they will not play it.

Oh, good, I'm glad I could be helpful! Remember that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over & over again even though it doesn't work.
