The best way to Start Piano
Rather than immediately getting your child formal, conventional piano lessons, you should allow for an indefinite period in which the child uses the simplest musiv\cal language possible to avoid confusion.
In our experience, children are very confused by the minutiae of sheet music, whereas numbers are already second nature to a three or four year old.
Rather than confuse kids at the beginning of piano, give them a period wherein they can just have fun with the instrument, without too many criticisms or insistence on basic curriculum.
There will be time enough later, when they are more comfortable, for starting to read music.
