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.
The next sign that your child is ready for lessons  is usually through verbal expression. The child may tell you outright that they want to start playing an instrument or taking voice lessons. Once the physical and verbal interest is there, it’s up to you as a parent to get the ball rolling. Our school is unique in that it offers month-to-month payment options for families. We don’t require long-term contracts or commitments like other music academies or sports programs.     
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.
