Hi everyone! Let me start with some relavent (or useless haha) information about myself.
I am 14 years old (freshman in high school)and have been playing the piano since I was eight. More recently I got into playing in music competitions (actually i've only played one but I have 2 more coming in the next month) and building my repertoire. I'm currently doing some polishing on Rachmanninoff's Prelude in C# Minor in which I will perform for those 2 upcoming competitions. Basically, piano is what I consider to be my God-given ability and music will definately be a big part of my future even more than it is now.
A mother that lives down the street asked me to give her six-year-old son piano lessons. So, being myself, always looking for a challenge (hehe) I said yes. I know I am probably not the most fit to teach but if I would have said no she'd have gotten a 7th grade girl to do it. I've already given one lesson to him, in which I taught him Mary Had a Little Lamb and went over finger-numberings and note names and got his right hand in the right spot on the keyboard.
What I'm asking for are some teaching techniques for six-year-olds and a basic curriculum for somone his age. I don't want to teach bad habits or cause him to lose interest in piano playing. At that age, I know that he has a delicate mind but is capable of a lot in the years to come. I do feel confident in my knowledge of music but I need some ideas.
