Child Readiness for Lessons

When considering enrolling your child in piano lessons, it is important to assess their mental, physical and emotional readiness for lessons. Here are a few things to consider when assessing a child's readiness for lessons:

Mental readiness

Can he/she demonstrate the ability to:

  • Recite the alphabet from the letters A - G forwards, and preferably backwards as well
  • Sit still, listen carefully to instructions and concentrate for at least 10 minutes at a time?
  • Count up from 1 to 10
  • Generally tell the difference between the left and right hand?

Physical readiness

Can he/she demonstrate the ability to:

  • Draw the letters of the alphabet from A through to G
  • Write the numbers 1 through to 10
  • Press the keys down without difficulty because he/she has developed enough physical strength in the fingers

Emotional readiness

Has the child:

  • Personally requested piano lessons


  • Displayed an interest in experimenting at the piano 


  • Respond to music positively by dancing, singing or physically moving to it
