What age should kids start piano lessons?

piano lessons for kids near meIn my studio, I like to start piano lessons for 7 year old children.

By the age of 7 years, children already have strong fine motor skills and are developing their reading and writing skills at school.

Fine motor skills gives children control of their arms, hands and fingers, which of course are essential for playing piano. Reading and writing skills enables students to read music and learn music theory right from the start as they learn to play the piano.

Do piano lessons for kids include learning music theory?

Yes, they do! Music theory is the foundations of music literacy, and is needed to help kids read music.

Will my child learn to read music?

Absolutely! Reading music is an essential skill – it is musical literacy.

Along with sight reading skills, kids need to know music theory and musicianship to be able to successfully read music and grow their understanding of how to play piano.

It is also important that kids learn to listen to their music, and play with a musical touch, so that they play piano both with an understanding of reading music and the ability to hear and express the nuances of musicality of their performance.

Reading music is an essential part of learning to play piano, and Elizabeth teaches piano lessons for kids with a good balance of music reading, understanding theory and musicianship, and aural skills.

Learning piano online vs private piano lessons – What’s best for kids?

piano lessons for kids parramattaOf course in theory, your child could learn anything online, but in my experience, having a private piano teacher will give kids much greater success in their progress. Weekly lessons with a quality piano teacher for children provide valuable feedback about their progress and also help them by setting regular goals.

In addition to this, online piano lessons don’t always teach great technique, and even if they do, many students miss this essential information. Developing a strong hand technique right from the first piano lessons gives a much better foundation on which to build their piano skills. This can be achieved most effectively through one-on-one private piano lessons for children.

What to expect from the first piano lessons for kids?

The first few piano lessons for beginners include things like:

  • Keyboard orientation – Getting to know the piano notes
  • Learning some finger exercises to start to strengthen their fingers
  • Introduction to reading music
  • Starting to play their first tunes on the piano (So exciting!)

At first, progress may seem a little slow, because there is a lot to learn, but regular practice at home will certainly speed up this early stage of learning.

As kids achieve success with each little thing in music lessons, from gaining control of their fingers, to being able to play their first tunes, your support and encouragement as parents is vital, and will make all the difference in their enthusiasm through these early stages of learning to play piano!

Are there any music books my child will need to bring to their piano lessons?

Every piano student needs music and a notebook for their music lessons. I will let you know what music books your child needs once we establish what they will be learning.

How much piano practice should my child be doing at home?

piano lessons for kids parramatta

Like any skill they are developing, kids need to be practicing the piano very regularly. The greatest success is achieved with daily practice, for the same length of time your child has for their lessons.

For example: A student who has 30 minute piano lessons should aim to practice piano at home for 30 minutes each day. This can be broken up into smaller blocks of time throughout the day until they develop their focus and concentration if needed.

Of course, there are times in a child’s life when this isn’t possible, but if the expectation is for daily piano practice, then they are more likely to achieve this and therefore make progress, which further motivates them …

Students who experience success through regular piano practice tend to stay far more motivated and therefore tend to enjoy their practice more – it’s the circle of success!
