When should my child start learning the piano?
I started piano lessons at the age of 7 years old. There is no rush. If they are musical they will progress quickly. If you do start too early there is a risk that your child will get disinterested because they will soon start learning to play hands together which can prove frustrating for them which means they can loose their confidence.
If you wait until they are at least 6 years old they are much more likely to enjoy their lessons, progress quickly and their confidence and enjoyment will soar.
Learning the piano or any instrument should be fun. If it isn't fun, they won't learn or progress.
When your child does start having lessons they will need to have a piano or electric keyboard at home. Practicing is vital for progress, even if it's starting with 5 minutes a day.
Playing the piano is a joy and a gift that I hope your children will be inspired to have and hopefully take with them into adulthood.
