First Year of Piano – A great start at 4yrs old!

Share Button

It’s been a ride this past year with starting piano lessons.  Looking back, there were struggles and breakthroughs.  I often go back to whether starting her in piano at 4yrs old was the right decision.  Reflecting back despite the challenges I still feel it was a good choice.  She’s learned to focus a little more (a huge hurdle at 4yrs as I’m sure you know) and that with some hard work and perseverance, the end result and recognition (remember she’s a Leo!) was all worth it.

One highlight through all of this is she actually composed her very first song!  Pretty crazy at 4yrs old but it was part of the program.  You can see her perform “Princess Abbey”, the song she created, in the video below.

All in all I’m glad we were able to take this journey together (yes – it’s a high parental involvement type of activity).  Being the proud mom, I’m happy to share Ella’s first year of piano performances!

  1. I love this and would love to get my daughter into piano I took lessons years ago and would love to start up again. It’s just time and money sometimes. But on my bucklist to learn or have my daughter know how and teach me. Such a beautiful skill. Thank you so much for linking up to Share With Me. I appreciate the linky loyalty and always look forward to seeing you again at SWM. #sharewithme

  2. What a beautiful song she wrote! And so talented.
    What age did she start? My daughter is showing an interest in the piano and plays it (well taps lots of notes, but gently) everyday. She’s 18 months old and we want to send her for lessons when she’s older but are unsure of when to start her off. Thank you so much for sharing this on #whatevertheweather x

    1. That’s great that your daughter has shown an interest already at 18 months! Ella just started last year, shortly after she turned 4yrs old. I wrote a post about why I chose to start her at 4yrs old – hope you find some of it useful when considering when to start lessons with your daughter. Good luck!

  3. Bravo, well done. I believe we should start developing our children and their talents early. If they’re not interested or don’t like the activity they will let us know. Looks like she’s enjoying it. Thanks for sharing on Sunday’s Best Linkup.

  4. I think it’s wonderful that you got her to stick with it! Music lessons are so beneficial! I hope she keeps going!

    Thank you for sharing with us at #MommyMeetupMondays!

    1. We’ve decided that quitting isn’t an option at this point and we’re treating it like learning a new language. You can’t really get anything from it with just a little amount of time so we’re committed and invested for the long haul. Hopefully I will learn patience through all of this myself with trying to help her practice 🙂

    1. Guitar is a little challenging for the little fingers for sure! Glad he’s enjoying drums. And if they gain confidence while learning a new skill, it’s a nice added benefit that I’m hoping for as well. Thanks for sharing 🙂

  5. Fun video and such a sweet child. She’s already so confident in her speech. I’m impressed. Thanks for linky up on the Tips & Tricks Linky Party. Good luck to Ella. She may be the next virtuoso.

  6. Wow – I can see why you are so proud! I love how confident Ella seemed as well as having music reading and piano skills. I am sure performing in front of an audience and her musical skills will help her in lots of aspects of her life, even if she doesn’t always continue to play the piano. #TheList
