What Is The Best Age To Begin Piano Lessons?

Best age for homeschool piano lessons

Parents who give their children the gift of a musical education start them out on a path that will enrich their lives in so many ways. Studying music develops discipline, hand-eye coordination, intelligence, and creates a skill that can bring happiness to both the performer and to listeners.

Here at Hoffman Academy, we recommend ages 5-8 as the perfect time to start instrumental lessons. At this age, children have the development to handle structured, formal educational settings. They’ve also acquired more fine motor skills, such as the ability to move fingers independently. However, it’s perfectly possible to start playing an instrument earlier.

How Long Will It Take To Learn The Piano?

How long does it take to learn piano?

The amount of time it takes to learn to play the piano depends on what level of playing you want to achieve. A person with no experience can learn to play the melody of a short song in minutes.

On the other hand, let’s say you want to become a world-class classical pianist, and perform crazy-advanced pieces like Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto #3. If you want to be a professional classical performer, you’re looking at a minimum of 10 to 15 years of concentrated study with a master teacher, and hours of practice every day.

Most people who want to play for their own enjoyment can get great results within three to five years of study and practice.

Homeschool Music Lessons for Kids – FAQ

  • What is a music curriculum?

    A music curriculum is a collection of music education topics covered in a program of study and a plan for how these topics will be presented to students.

    What makes a good music curriculum?

    A complete music curriculum should include not only the study of how to play a musical instrument, but also music theory, ear training, sight reading, transposition, music dictation, and composing. A well-designed curriculum introduces the beginning levels of these topics early and then develops them in an organized way, providing the student with a complete set of skills as they grow as a musician.

  • How can I teach my child to play the piano at home?

    We’re excited that you want to begin a journey of learning the piano with your child! There are many ways to help your child learn the piano at home. An important part of the experience will be to choose a piano instructor that works well with your child and with your family. Read How to Find a Piano Teacher for some tips on how to do that. You’ll also want to be sure to encourage Music Practice the Positive Way to make sure your child always finds piano playing an enjoyable experience.

    With so many piano lesson videos available on the internet, it might be tempting to simply hunt down various songs for your child to learn. However, this method won’t provide a well-rounded set of music skills. Choosing a complete music education program, like Hoffman Academy, will help ensure your child is getting the full benefit of a music education and is on the path to becoming a confident musician for life.
