Hi - wondered if anyone on the forum might be able to help me? There are lots of activities set up for children to 'have a go' at different sports and see which they like, and I wondered if there was something similar for music/ musical instruments?

My eldest is 7 now, and I started piano lessons around this age... but I always wished I learned to play something in an orechestra :o) Sadly, my children don't have access to musical tuition at their school until Year 5, and we don't have a piano, so not sure if the traditional piano lessons make sense!

Does anyone have any suggestions? Any tips gratefully received!

The Horniman do various hands on musical sessions for children, or at least used to. Worth checking out the website.

Just in case its of interest, Morleys in Lewisham hire out pianos for 30 a month. I think its a years minimum rental.

We are thinking of having one as think its nice to have one in the house. Difficult to squeeze in though sometimes but I think a real piano is much better than the electronic versions as it has weighted keys.
