Is there anyone who could give me some advice on how to get my little boy started on the piano?
We have one at home, which he likes to tinkle on - he uses both hands and all his fingers, which is a good start I think!!
I got to grade 7 myself, not a professional teacher but I thought maybe I could start him off (before he's old enough for formal lessons).
Any recommendations as regards books we could work from or games etc we could play??
You might get better results posting on the Teacher forum. For myself, I think four is a tad on the young side to start formal lessons, but I guess if you make it fun it's fine. A note of caution, though - my youngest son (now 11) started copying his elder brother when the elder began having lessons (aged 6 or 7). The younger seemed to be quite musical - in contrast to other children, he played with delicacy rather than banging the keys, and seemed to have independent movement in both hands. Sadly, he's not a pianist - I can tell you, from having got him through Grade I and given up on Grade II.
