North West learning to play violin

Kim Kardashian West's daughter is learning to play the violin.

Little North may only be three years old but it seems she's already following in the footsteps of her rapper father Kanye West by taking an interest in music as she's beginning to learn how to play the instrument.

Taking to her Snapchat account this week, Kim uploaded a photograph of North, who was dressed in an adorable fairy costumes, fiddling with the strings of the child-size instrument while her teacher explained each sound.

The brunette beauty accompanied the picture with caption: "My fairy princess in her violin lesson (sic)."

And it's not just the violin North has taken a liking to as she's also trying to master playing the piano.

Four months ago, the 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' star uploaded a sweet photograph of North sitting at the keyboard, tapping on the keys while gazing at a music sheet.

Meanwhile, North isn't the only member of the family to learn the piano as Kim also started taking lessons from acclaimed Russian pianist Oksana Kolesnikova, who runs her own music school in Beverly Hills, California, last year.

Kim decided to get tuition from the blonde beauty, who was mistakenly linked to Mel Gibson in 2009, after her older sister Kourtney gave her a piano for Christmas in 2014.

She wrote at the time: "I'm going to surprise Kanye by learning one of his songs. He's hardly on social media so he won't know I'm tweeting this lol (sic)"

Kim and Kanye, who got married in 2014, also have eight-month-old son Saint together.
