Did you know?

Music students out-perform non-music students on achievement tests in reading and math. Skills such as reading, anticipating, memory, listening, forecasting, recall, and concentration are developed in musical performance, and these skills are valuable to students in math, reading, and science.

Is your child ready?
A child is ready for formal piano instruction if and when they…

  • Can read a Dr. Suess book

  • Know left from right hand

  • Can sit still on the piano bench

  • Have an available parent to help with short daily practices

  • Already have a piano or keyboard and most importantly

  • Have expressed an interest

This could be age 5, 6, 7, 8 or older and there is no rush.

If your child struggles at all with reading or completing homework assignments, it is best to wait another year to gain more experience with these things.
