Piano Lessons for Kids and Teens

Most kids will be ready begin piano lessons from age 5 1/2 +, or from whenever your child shows a keen interest in playing the piano which can be as young as 3! Make sure your child's hand is big enough to comfortably stretch across five keys on the piano. Kids who learn the piano at a young age will soon develop the neccesary understanding of basic music concepts which will make the transition to other musical instruments much easier!

Studying music develops discipline, hand-eye coordination, intelligence, and creates a skill that can bring happiness to both the performer and to all who listen. According to a recent article in the LA Times, 6-year-olds who received keyboard instruction had more brain growth and better fine motor skills than their peers. Piano lessons are such a great thing, why not get started as soon as possible?
