piano lessons, 3 year olds, 4 year olds, 5 year olds, very young children learning piano

Help! My 3 year old wants to play!

What do you do if you have a very young child who is keen to learn to play the piano?

Fortunately at Time to learn Piano we now offer lessons for young children using "Dogs & Birds" the Kodaly based method devised by a Hungarian piano teacher (Elza Lusher) who lives in the UK

At present we have 3,4 and 5 year olds using this method as well as slightly older children, but it is possible for even 2 year olds to use the method with a great deal of home support and assistance with practising.


Catherine attended Cambridge University with one of Elza Lusher's colleagues,Nikhil Dally- who specialises in music teaching for 2-8 year olds, and together they form part of   the Kodaly Music School of Runnymede. It is through working with this organisation that we can now offer this very exciting way of teaching the piano and musicianship through singing and movement as well as at the keyboard.  The results can be quite amazing in terms of the young child's learning, although it is essential that the parent or carer fully supports this method and helps with practising at home.

Catherine is herself fully qualified to work with very young children having studied for her Early Years Professional Status at University of Gloucestershire a few years ago,as well as holding a primary post graduate teacher training from University of Cambridge.

Catherine has attended a number of workshops in implementing this method, which in fact incorporates many aspects of her teaching, and we have copies of all the books and materials available, so your child can start straight away!


So if your child is a very young starter, if s/he can concentrate for 20 minutes and loves music, this is the way to learn for him or her!
