We think 6-7 years of age is the youngest that children can start private piano lessons. At this age children have begun to develop longer attention spans, can retain material with ease, and have gained more physical finger dexterity.
8-9 years of age is the earliest we recommend for guitar, and 10 years of age for bass guitar. Guitar and electric bass require that the left hand of the student apply direct pressure to the strings of the instrument in order to produce a clear sound. Children under this age may lack the hand strength to accomplish this task.
10 years of age is the earliest we recommend for bass guitar. Electric bass requires that the left hand of the student apply direct pressure to the strings of the instrument in order to produce a clear sound. Electric bass has very large, metal strings. Children under this age may lack the hand strength to accomplish this task.
