I need help teaching my 11 year old daughter music. She has music in her heart and is currently playing piano, violin, recorder, harmonica and clarinet. Playing music comes easy for her and I am thankful for that. She started (on her own) singing harmony when she was 8. She can pick up her violin and play harmony to anything without even thinking about it. We got her a used clarinet last fall and in 2 days she was playing harmony easily. Sounds great, but here is the problem. I am really struggling finding a way to teach her to read music. I teach my kids piano (the only instrument I play) and because she can play anything she hears she can just play the songs without a book. She plays songs from our CD's complete with chords and add in extras. I am using Alfred's piano books but her sister is a book ahead and she (my 11 year old) is playing the same songs as her older sister just because she hears them. I tried using different books than her sister, but if she plays the song once or twice it is in her head and she doesn't even need the book any more. Any advice? I am very thankful for her ability, but if she keeps on this way she will only be able to play songs she knows. This post may belong in the music forum, but I am not down there much and the moderator did say I could place it here.
