How to Tell When Your Child Is Ready For Music Lessons
A child often conveys readiness for music lessons with physical expression. This is often starts with banging on pots and pans, tapping on couches, pretending a briefcase is a piano or that a notebook is a keyboard. If you play music and your child stops what they're doing and starts dancing, that's a good sign that they might be ready to start learning an instrument.
When searching for a school, choose one with a month-to-month or short-term payment plan. If your child enjoys their lessons, they can continue. If they’re not, you can submit a withdrawal form. Don’t go to a school that requires you to sign long term contracts. You should be wary of schools that require a substantial pre-payment before you begin lessons. The schools with the best teachers are flexible and have month-to-month plans that do not require stiff contracts. Good schools also have the option for electronic payments. Find a school with a month-to-month auto-pay service.
