You can start Kids with Instrument lessons with teachers at any age, from very young to starting at Middle School, or even higher. We have all seen those young proteges who wow us with their talent. Many started at a young age and have been consistently practicing and learning for months and years.
Research shows there is also a link between learning to play an instrument and the development of parts of the brain for kids too!
My daughter Lucy has been learning Piano for nearly 3 years and my son has been learning Guitar for 2 years and now Saxophone at Middle School. Personally I see huge benefits in nurturing their love of playing music.
There are a number of options for you to look at when choosing a teacher. Meet them and learn about their personality, experience, approach and qualifications. Learn as much as you can about their teaching style. Spot the signs if it appears that a child isn’t ready to learn to play an instrument. Or, learning to play an instrument becomes a chore for parents who are having to repeatedly encourage their child to practice.
Check their fees to ensure they are within your budget. Check if they need their own instrument at home and how much practice they expect between lessons.
