They say that the best time to teach children is right up to 7 years old. Those are the foundation years and we as parents should capitalized on it. As a child, my parents sent me for organ lessons and I enjoyed it. I dont think I had the talent to play well but I did enjoy myself at the classes. Of course it got harder as my grades increased. I finally stopped my music lessons when I was about 12 years old.
Given the choice, I’d like the girls to take up music lessons too and we did consider getting one of those Suzuki digital pianos because it is not as bulky as the other pianos you get. If you ask me why the piano? Well, although I took up the organ, I was always impressed by pianist. I think the piano sounds so much nicer too!
