Since the 1990s, the rapid development of the Internet promoted the daily life in China, especially the education system. The COVID-19 pandemic has presented challenges as well as opportunities for music education. Teachers and students need to explore new methods to address the situation. This study focuses on enlightenment piano teaching, especially young children. Based on Piaget's theory of cognitive development, several teaching methods for early childhood piano instruction will be proposed in this article to help more piano teachers understand the age characteristics of pre-school children and to better assist piano instruction. In offline piano lessons, teachers may start lessons with their fingers on the keyboard and text materials. In online piano lessons, teachers can utilize various types of media for teaching. In the near future, online education could prove to be more effective. This study aims to analyze the advantages and disadvantages, and provide effective guidelines for online piano education.
