Victoria Beckham's four-year-old son BROOKLYN is hoping to follow in his mum's musical footsteps - by taking piano lessons from SIR Elton John.

Brooklyn, the former SPICE GIRL's first child with English soccer ace David Beckham, has been making regular visits to the rock legend's home in Windsor, near London, for private piano tutorials from the musical maestro - and friends say he's learning fast.

A source tells British tabloid the DAILY STAR, "Brooklyn has a real flair for music and enjoys messing around with Elton at his house when they visit.

"Elton dotes on him and Victoria and David think his musical experience and skill are invaluable in helping Brooklyn develop an ability.

"They want Brooklyn to have a skill he can use in later life."
