Want to know more about Rote and Reading teaching?
When you teach only by rote or only by reading, there is an obvious lack of skills developing in your student. But when you combine both reading and rote, you end up teaching the child in a way that is more natural to their learning process. In addition, the rote pieces (which sound bigger and more mature) will motivate and excite your student while they are having to play more elementary sounding pieces because of their low reading ability.
In the same way that kids learn to speak before they learn to read, it is more natural for a student to learn to play before they learn to read notes on a page. For more thoughts on the value of rote teaching and how long it really takes a child to learn to read music, read: How Long Does It Take to Learn to Read Music?
