We can learn on our own mistakes or by observing someone else's mistakes.
Both ways are a powerful way to learn.
In a group setting every student gets to learn both ways.
I know I’m all about unplugging with kids, but I do love Cosmic Kids Yoga on YouTube! It’s a great way to get kids focused and moving. I used to use it at least once a week with my preschool class, and they all enjoyed following trying to get into the poses. The woman who leads this program moved quickly enough that children don’t lose interest, and she is fun and exciting!
Check out Cosmic Kids Yoga for all different yoga adventures with your little one! :-)
Does your baby use a pacifier? Some studies have shown that babies who use pacifiers at bedtime and naptime have a lower risk of SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome). Pacifiers are also a great way to nurture and calm your baby after he or she has been nurtured and fed. 📷: @ryanandrose
The process of repetition is applicable to development of every skill from sports to science. Environment of art is a playful initiation into the repetition where our sense of excellence, a drive to do well and have fun drives us to keep repeating. Through play we develop a pattern of behavior, a character that persists at the task and does not get easily frustrated. Someone who understands that mini failures of pressing a wrong key eventually lead to a strong performance.

Through the process of learning the skill of playing piano we establish a pattern of behavior, a positive, self confident personality that is aware of their inner power.
Learning to play piano gives insight and a reference to what does it feel like to "keep trying" and getting better. We see the relationship between repetition and the quality of the outcome.

Music as a life long companion🎶 "Can I start over?" When a student asks this question, they are feeling a surge of energy, a desire to excel.
In art we are driven by passion and inspiration. That energy propels us to try to overcome challenges and in trying and repeating we get better. We experience our progress- a reward of our "work".

"Wind" by Neil Moore performed by Jeremy (14 years old).
"We all improvise on a daily basis, yet most of us are unaware of this fact. When we have conversations, we technically have never had the same conversation twice, unless it is a scripted dialogue. Even then, our inflections or delivery of these conversations will always differ ever so slightly. We pull together words from the vocabulary we have built up over the years and combine them in a new order or sequence every time we speak."
- Leon Moore

When we nurture our inner self we naturally carry that light energy, touching all aspects of our lives.
"Honey Dew" arrangement 3 by Neil Moore, performed by Callan (9years old), supported by her daddy Kenji:)
To overcome stage fright and shyness, it is important to focus on what we are giving, not the audience. Racing horse has blinders on.
Attention on the audience creates fear of judgement and self doubt.
"Minuet in G" performed by Callan (9 years old), supported by her daddy Kenji:)
...a little piano after a day at the swim camp...:)

There are not many differences between human beings and other forms of life. We all breathe oxygen (ok, trees breathe CO2), we are made of carbon (ok, sponges are made of silica), we feed, we procreate, some birds can use tools. The only difference is imagination, abstract thought, knowledge transfer through symbols (written language), and expression through abstraction of sound, color, movement and language.
When we point to the moon- dog looks at the finger, and human child looks at the moon.
"Night Storm "by Neil Moore performed by Luna. Luna is currently level 2.
Healing and rejuvenating aspect of playing instruments🎶
The nature of human focus us that it can only hold one thought at the time.
Thoughts create emotional charge.
By focusing on our fingers when playing piano we can stop the operational thought and dissipate negative emotional charge bringing ourselves back to 0.
Ahh that feeling, one like no other, fitting into your favorite pre-mama jeans or half way zipper will do, that’s close enough 😂.

"Watching things run" by Neil Moore performed by Jeremy (14 years old).
Music as a life long companion
It takes two components for the student to retain music as a life long companion:
1. Longevity of lessons - longer the better
2. Positive experience
Positive experience without longevity doesn't give rise to the skill.
Longevity of grueling experience makes a student not adopt the skill.
Music as a life long companion 🎶 Developing a skill is a long term process.
It takes 5 to 7 years to get good at playing piano.
Beat the heat and join us for some cool jams this afternoon at @whatababephoto

"Star Spangled Banner" performed by Anna (12 years old), supported in the background by her brother Sam (9 years old) and mommy Erin:) This song is an introduction to split chords. Rather hard to play correctly for a beginner:) ...and a nice opportunity for her younger brother to envision his future triumphs in sports:)
Music as a life long companion 🎶
As we put in an effort to learn we build inner power that shapes our visions into reality.
Work in progress - "Alma Mater Blues" performed by Sam (9 years old), supported by his sister Anna (12 years old). It takes a lot of effort to play correctly and evenly :) sometimes we make it, and sometimes we need to keep trying:)
Music as a life long companion🎶
Music can take us into memories. A playlist of songs from a patient's youth was selected and played for otherwise non responsive patients. They came to life and communicated that the good feelings and romantic feelings the music of their youth evoked gave them a surge of positive energy.
My mom knows me so well. She saw this statue in San Fransisco and photographed it for me. I love my mom so much!
Improv on black keys performed by Anna (11 years old), supported in the background by her brother Sam (9 years old). Pentatonic scale is an easy way to relax into the flow of improvisation.

It’s hard not to recognize the good in my life. Especially since you’ve been in it. I hope that in the near future you’re able to cultivate and keep an abundance mindset, and that it comes to you at a younger age than when it finally settled in me. Everything is much more wonderful this way. I hope you’re able to see life as something that you can mold and make to your liking, an adventure to create, a sometimes scary one, but an adventure nonetheless. I pray that I’m given enough days to see you through your toughest times, and that I’m able to hold your hand and hear your thoughts just like I do now, or until you’re able to truly be on your own. I got your back MyBuzzyBuzzy (BB) 🐝, to the moon and we never come back, always , all ways... #MessagesToXaiden
Staying positive is one of the basic principles of manifestation in life. By overcoming challenges we get programmed to stay positive, to envision the final outcome, and to put in an effort to get to the goal. Learning a skill like playing piano offers the opportunity to learn to overcome.
