How old should a child be to begin piano lessons?

What is the right age 
to start piano lessons?

That's a loaded question.

I, myself,
started the study of piano
when I was 4-years-old.

But what age is best?
I think the earlier the better.
Music study needs to be a part of daily life.
"Practice your piano," needs to be heard
as often as
"do your homework,"
"clean your room,"
"feed the dog," etc. etc.

If your child:
- knows the alphabet from A to G
- can count up to 10
- knows which hand is right and which hand is left
- can sit still for 10 minutes at a time

. . .then, my friend, your child is more than ready
to formally begin the study of piano!
