What is the right age to start music lessons?
Many people come to me asking “What is the right age to start music lessons?” My answer depends on the parent and the child.
We start music lessons as early as 5 years old. Typically, a child who is 5 is still learning fine motor skills so lessons are based around having fun. For the 5 and 6 year old group we like to have the parents attend so they can learn the notes to help the child practice.
We suggest children begin lessons at 7 years old. Students at 7 have better motor skills and have patients to sit for a full class, 30 minutes. Parents do not have to attend classes but we ask parents to motivate the child to practice. For practice tips please check out our blog ….
Really if your child is excited to take lessons anytime is the perfect age to start. Let’s start tomorrow!
