When parents call me to book a child in for piano lessons they often ask if their child is too young.

Leaning music and your child’s brain

A great age to start piano lessons is around the age of 5 years. At this age the brain is developing very quickly and a great analogy would be soaking up information as a sponge does with water.

Music is a language and just as we do not start to teach our children to speak around the age of 8 or 10 but as soon as possible, so it is with learning music.

Children who start music lessons at the earlier ages tend to carry this skill to adulthood – music becomes part of them and the chance of success with supportive parents is extremely high.

Best age to start guitar lessons

With guitar students I find that around the age of 6 is a better time to start as finger strength is an important factor in playing a stringed instrument.

How parents can support their child’s music lessons

Most children love to please their parents, so listening regularly to your children play is a key ingredient to their success.
