My daughter loves to climb up to the piano and plunk away at the keys. She is three. When are children old enough to learn songs on the piano? Is 3 too young to start?
The earlier the bettet
For the most part, 3 years might be a little too young to start learning how to play songs but she could still have short lessons that teach her note names, how to sit still and finding the beat/rhythm. The only people I know of that learned songs on the piano at age of 3 are Ethan Bortnick who was featured on NPR a few years ago and the great composers like Mozart but they were far beyond scope of normal human beings. Typically, kids can start learning songs on the piano by the time they're 4-5. Hope this helps.
