Best Age to Start Music Lessons (by Instrument)
6+ Years Old
Learning guitar can be stressful on a child’s fingers and ultimately become frustrating. This is especially true for younger children.
When it comes to fine motor skills, finger strength and flexibility, we’ve found it’s best to start guitar lessons at age 6 at the very minimum. If a student younger than 6 wants to play guitar badly, we recommend starting with ukulele as a much easier alternative.
4+ Years Old
Piano lessons are a wonderful option for young students wanting to begin music lessons! Students are able to start at an early age because playing the piano consists of pressing down keys easily with minimal strength. This makes learning songs a fun and exciting experience!
11-12 Years Old
The minimum age we recommend a student start voice lessons is around 11-12 years old. A voice lesson which focuses strictly on technique can be very challenging on younger vocal chords that have not yet developed. Students who usually gain the most out of private voice lessons are going through or have fully gone through puberty.
Bass Guitar Lessons
8+ Years Old
Electric bass strings are very thick. Because of the string thickness, students will need greater finger and hand strength to press each string to the fret board to create clear and sustained notes. Considering this, we recommend bass lessons to students above 7 years of age.
5+ Years Old
We recommend drum lessons for interested students ages 5 and up. Drums is a great introductory instrument when it comes to learning rhythm and timing. For younger students (5 and 6 years old), we recommend starting with a small practice pad or single drum and eventually moving up to a full set of drums if desired.
6+ Years Old
Violins come in four sizes; 1/4 (quarter size), 1/2 (half size), 3/4 (three quarter size), and 4/4 (full size). The size is based on the student’s arm length and any qualified string instrument provider will be able to measure your child quickly and accurately on site. They will also ensure that size is comfortable for the student. Due to the fine motor skills needed to learn how to play the violin, we recommend starting violin lessons at the minimum age of 6.
8+ Years Old
Students beginning cello lessons will need to ensure they are properly sized for their instrument. Cellos also come in four sizes (1/4, 1/2, 3/4, and 4/4 sizes.). When measured, the cello size is based on the student’s arm length and ability to sit with the cello sitting comfortably against their shoulder at the correct height and between the student’s knees.
Cello strings are much thicker than violin strings, also requiring the student to have more hand and finger strength to press strings to the finger board. A student can start cello younger than 8, however, due to the fine motor skills needed to learn the instrument, we recommend starting no younger than 8 yrs. old for the best experience.

Praise for Lessons On The Go®
Aidan has not put his guitar down since starting lessons with Paul. He is very professional and thorough. We never realized how easy and effective virtual lessons could be. We are excited to see what the future holds.Lorena P.
We love Lessons on the Go! They made everything so easy. The office staff are so friendly, helpful and efficient, nothing is too much trouble. They organized a lesson time that worked with our family schedule. Karen, the kid’s teacher, is amazing and the kids just love her. They wait by the door for her to arrive each week, as they are so excited to have their lesson. Karen has such a lovely manner with both my children. We would highly recommend using Lesson on the Go, as our kids really enjoy their music lessons and can’t wait for the next one.Brendan C.
My daughter has been taking piano lessons with Ms. Elaine Miller for about 1.5 years. She recently switched to violin, her instrument of choice. The piano lessons were very helpful in developing a good feel for timing, notes that sound good together, and of course overall musicianship. Ms. Miller is a fantastic teacher, with deep knowledge and patience. And, of course, the convenience of the music teacher coming to your house is hard to beat.Markus A.
- Jessica L.We have had a great experience with Lessons On The Go. My children have been taking guitar and violin lessons with Sam K. for a while and really look forward to their weekly lessons. Sam is always encouraging them to select songs they will enjoy playing. The kids also enjoy preparing for the Spring and Winter recitals. Rescheduling lessons due to vacation or illness is super easy, and the staff at the office are always willing to answer any questions promptly. We also love the fact that the instructor comes over. With our busy schedules that is priceless!
Lessons On The Go offers a unique experience to how you want to learn and with who. My teacher is incredibly kind and is always excited to teach in a way that gets me excited to learn. I was worried how I could fit the lessons into a busy schedule, but because it is offered at my own house it is convenient.Ellie T.
We love Lessons on the Go! Ms.Elaine makes piano so much fun and lets the kids help choose music and pieces to play. I love that we don’t have to drive to the lessons, but she comes to us. I highly recommend this company for all your music lessons!Jeff and Kristen N.
My 6-year-old daughter really enjoys learning to play the piano with Mr. Luis. He is patient and soft-spoken and encouraging which is great for her! I cannot say enough about the convenience of having the instructor come to our house. Without that, I don’t believe my daughter would ‘stick’ with learning to play the piano. Mr.Luis is also very flexible and understanding when I need to reschedule. I look forward to watching my daughter learn to play the piano!Lisa K.
