Piano For Tiny Fingers

Investing time into piano practice means having great technique. My passion for piano lies deeper than that, it lies within the heart. Allow me to share my love with 2 'things' I love most - CHILDREN and piano!!!

Piano For Tiny Fingers is about a fun start to learning piano basics. Learn the notes & keys, learn to coordinate the two with a fun and stimulating program. Hello and welcome to my page Piano For Tiny Fingers. My name is Paulina Newman. A little about me, I have been playing piano since the age of 8. I have sat the AMEB exams and an average of A for exams both practical and theory. I've

Victorian COVID-19 Update

I guess it was pretty clear lockdown 6 was going to be prolonged..

[06/18/21]   All Term 3 information has now been sent to all enrolled families.
If you have not received this, please get in touch asap!!

[04/27/21]   Get Your Move On!!!

As the weather gets yuckier by the day it’s harder to motivate yourself to get out and stay active.. Kids are the same, they rather snuggle up on the couch with their iPads or Nintendo or whatever other devices.. But we owe them the best so remember the many benefits to being active and getting your move on.

A simple 15 minutes 4 times a day is all it takes. Whatever gets them moving, gets them active.

Participating in regular physical activity boosts physical and mental health and improves academic performance. Physical activity throughout the day improves concentration, and our ability to retain information and solve problems.

Did you know, research shows that exposure to music can also improve children's ability to learn. Music and movement instruction has been shown to improve children's memory, cognitive development, learning skills and expressive ability. It promotes group learning, practicing social skills such as turn-taking, cooperation and so much more that further helps children on numerous educational fronts.

It’s well known that music ignites all areas of a child’s development and skills for school readiness, including intellectual, social-emotional, motor, language, and overall literacy. It helps the body and the mind work together...

Fun fact, did you know dancing to music helps children build motor skills while allowing them to practice self-expression.

[11/03/20]   Dear Families, thank you for your efforts in successfully flattening the curve! I appreciate your patience and support during this unprecedented global pandemic. A challenging time for most.

As we re-enter our social world, we must continue to be vigilant and adhere to all health and social distancing guidelines to keep ourselves and our loved ones as safe as possible based on the knowledge and guidance we’re provided.

As you’re aware, I have introduced extra precautions to keep your children safe and well as you return to the studio.

Your personal contact information must be up-to-date and must be provided at the start of each lesson.

Please do not bring your child if ANYONE in your family has been overseas or interstate in the last 14 days.

Please do not bring your child if you or any family members have been in contact with or have had a confirmed a COVID-19 case.

No family members or friends are able to accompany your child to his/her lesson. ONLY students (under 18yrs of age) are allowed to enter the premises.

If you or ANY family member have a fever, cough or other flu-like symptoms, please do not come to the studio.

Upon arrival, each student will be required to wash their hands, use our hand sanitiser and be temperature checked. If a student is unwell, showing cold or flu-like symptoms or have a temperature of 37.5 or higher, they will not be allowed to stay for the lesson.

Please remind your children to cover their mouth and nose when sneezing or coughing with elbow or tissue.

I am constantly reviewing and implementing the latest COVID-19 Health & Safety Policy in order to ensure it is consistent with current directions and advice provided by the Department of Health and Human Services Victoria. If you have any health and safety questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

I am thrilled to start seeing students back in the studio!!!!

Thank you again for all your support throughout this year.

Warmest wishes,
Paulina

[10/14/20]   Just a few things to personalise our studio for when we’re back... Personal slippers for each student at arrival after a quick temperature check at the door!!

The Royal Children's Hospital, Melbourne

With less than a week to go until children in Metro Melbourne return to on-site learning many parents may be letting out a sigh of relief. However, not all children are looking forward to returning and may feel some anxiety as they count down the days.

Check out our video with Dr Anthea Rhodes as she highlights some common concerns parents and children have, and how you can support your child in the lead up to the big day.

I’M HERE TO HELP ALL OUR CHILDREN ADJUST AS RESTRICTIONS ARE SLOWLY LIFTED

I recently posted a photo with some ‘changes’ that will soon be happen in the studio.
Just to clarify so everyone clearly understands.

Those that are in the 5km radius to Piano Finy Fingers will soon (date to be confirmed) be allowed to return to face to face lessons.

1: Only ‘1’ one student is allowed on the premises at any given time!
Parents, are simply doing a kiss and go from their car.

2: When a student come into the studio they will have their temperature checked by me.

3: I will be wearing a facemask for your protection and if you wish to also wear one I’m happy for you to do so, I know some kids find it fun but this isn’t necessary.

4: As usual practice, the student and I will go and wash our hands with soap and dry them thoroughly prior to sitting at the piano.

5: Some of the new changes include we will be taking our shoes off at the entrance of door and I will give you some disposable slippers or you’re welcome to just go in socks, the studio is always warm while windows are open for fresh air ventilation.

6: They will no longer be group classes. All lessons will be one-on-one, private lessons with me. This will change and groups will be allowed again as soon as we are permitted to do so.

Additional practices/changes may arise as we’re living in a forever changing environment, but I assure you I will keep you up-to-date best I can.

Keep checking in to see when we’re finally given a green light to start onsite.

I miss you all so so very much!!!!!
Your endless support has got me through this horribly difficult time and it seems we’re almost there!!! Yay!!!!! X###

I’M HERE - READY TO SUPPORT ALL OUR CHILDREN AS RESTRICTIONS SLOWLY EASE

I’m a big advocator for teachers, parents, carers, all professional members working with younger and older children to constantly build better relationships and develop deeper and stronger understanding of challenges that our children face on a daily basis.
This year - 2020 has thrown challenges like never before. When returning to face-to-face very soon, it all seems very exciting however, there maybe deep underlying emotional, mental and physical difficulties kids maybe withholding, be it consciously or without intention. Our children maybe overwhelmed with fears and changes and how they fit in after so much time at home...
This weekend, I’ll be attending a webinar about upgrading my mindset, empowering me with tools for potentially difficult scenarios that may be heading my way and I pray I’ll walk away empowered with skills and abilities to help our kids best I can today, tomorrow and for years to come!!

Our Story

Piano For Tiny Fingers is about a fun start to learning piano basics. Learn the notes & keys, learn to coordinate the two with a fun and stimulating program.

Hello and welcome to my page Piano For Tiny Fingers. My name is Paulina Newman.

A little about me, I have been playing piano since the age of 8. I have sat the AMEB exams and an average of A for exams both practical and theory. I've attended numerous stage performances and competed on stage.

Today, I'm a mum to 2 gorgeous boys and have adjusted my program to suit beginners as this is where my passion lies. A program for beginners should be addressed with passion as this is where it all begins.

The Beginner starts from square one. Together, we will look at the keys that make up the piano and the note names we give to each. From there, you’ll learn where to put your hands, how to use your fingers to play scales, chords and arpeggios followed by some lovely tunes.

Piano For Tiny Fingers offer two learning structures - small groups which are age categorised or 1 on 1 lessons.

I really look forward to meeting with you and your little one and making a pleasant musical change in your everyday life.
