How to teach ADHD boy following instructions?
My boy is 8 years old. When he was 6 years old, he learned piano and then quitted since he couldn’t focus. Recently, he love to play piano and always plays without even being asked. However he only play those songs he knows. When it comes to play a new one, he get frustrated very quickly and does’t want to figure it out. Most importantly, he doesn’t know how to follow the instructions. He even said that why he need to follow the beat in piano! I am kind of worried since following rules is very important in life. It is not just piano, it applies to many other areas! How can I teach him to follow instructions? How can I teach him to not to get frustrated daily? Can ADHD kids learn how to play piano?
Thanks a lot!
