I LOVE teaching piano to young children. Experiencing the excitement of learning a musical instrument through their eyes, their enthusiasm for practicing, their sense of adventure for trying new things — it’s incredibly rewarding.
BUT…it can also be challenging. Young students can become easily distracted, might have limited focus and may get frustrated quickly.
There are so many benefits to teaching piano to young children and getting a child started with lessons at an early age. If you as the parent are willing to be an active practice partner and support for your child, there’s no reason why he can’t begin lessons sooner than later.
In this video, I’ll give you loads of tips for working with a young beginner. You can download your free cheat sheet HERE to print off and keep close to the piano to remind you of the valuable pointers I’ll be giving you in the livecast below.
