Is My Child Ready For WunderKeys Piano Lessons?

Readiness for piano lessons can vary widely amoung 3-5 year olds.  Consider the following when assessing whether your child is ready to begin piano lessons.

If you find you are answering "no" or "not quite" to many of these questions, it is suggested that you wait a few months before beginning WunderKeys piano lessons.

Little ones develop and change rapidly! WunderKeys is designed to help them grow and learn, and creates the most feelings of success when children begin lessons once they are able to do most of the tasks listed. 


Interest

  • Does your child show interest in the piano?
  • Does he/she like listening and moving to music?
  • Is he/she excited about the prospect of piano lessons?
  • Is your child comfortable being away from you for short periods of time?
  • Does your cihld know the difference between "banging" on the piano keys vs. playing carefully?

Communication

  • Does your child respond well to questions asked by adults other than his/her parents?
  • Does your child sit and listen to stories with interest?
  • Is your child easily brought back to task when needed?
  • Can your child speak clearly and make himself understood in most situations?

Coordination

  • Can your child wiggle only his thumbs or only his index fingers when asked?
  • Can your child hold a pencil or crayon?
  • Is your child potty trained?
  • Can your child follow two-part directions when asked? (For example, "Use your right hand to pick up the glass and then take it to the table.)
  • Can your child focus on a single task for 5-minute intervals?

Home

  • Do you have a piano or an adequate keyboard at home?  A home instrument will be needed.
  • Do you have the time to sit with your child regularly to assist with home piano time? Preschool piano students need their parents to help them at home every day
  • Do you have the ability to bring your child to lessons regularly? Consistency is important to your child's success.
