I have a daughter who is 4 years old. I would like her to learn how to play the piano. At what age should I sign her up for lessons? Thanks!
Here is a link where a professional piano teacher discusses what to look for to see if your child is ready to learn to play the piano:
In my case, my mother began teaching me around 4 years of age. Have you seen the Oprah TV show where a young boy of around 5 is already composing his own pieces? Good luck! The piano is the very best instrument to begin with. Of course, your daughter may not be able to read music yet, although there is a wonderful cardboard scale to post behind the keys and that is very helpful.
Be sensitive to the difference between your desires for your daughter and her desires. After a few months of lessons, she and you will know better her desires. I agree 4-5 is a good age to start.
