Is my 4 year old too young to learn how to play music?

Not at all. In fact, studies have shown that young children are in a prime development condition to soak in knowledge and grow their dexterity over time. The older we get, the harder it is to learn new skills, which is why 4 and 5 year old children tend to excel when introduced to music early on.

How can I be sure my child is ready to learn how to play a musical instrument?

Typically, children show interest in a variety of hobbies as they grow, and music is one of the strongest. Try to gauge the level of your child’s enthusiasm for music before assuming that they are ready for lessons. If they show a marked interest in music beyond just the occasional sing-along, it’s a good idea to introduce them to music lessons to see if they’d like to make it a full-scale hobby.

How can I be sure my child will stick with music lessons?

Children have a habit of changing their preferences on a constant basis, but don’t mistake this for lack of interest in music. A good rule of thumb is never to force music lessons on a child, especially those focused on an instrument they don’t wish to play. When it comes to practice, children may need extra motivation from parents in order to keep up with their training, but that doesn’t necessarily indicate disinterest.

How can I encourage my child to practice learning their instrument?

Kids are all about fun, so the more enthusiastic you make a practice session, the more incentive there is for children to put in the time. Try setting small goals for your child to achieve over time, and use them as building blocks to keep them motivated. Once the habit has been formed, and your child starts becoming technically proficient, they will feel enthusiastic about their training.
