#beginquote# Birth is the time to start musical training. There is no age that is too young. You must approach the learning in an age appropriate way is all. My daughter explores many instruments (she's 5 now). As a music teacher, I am careful to keep the instruments as toys in her eyes. I do not expect anything from here, we just play together. Do not place any pressure on your young musician. Just explore together. Let curiosity and the enjoyment of doing this with you drive him or her. As far as specific instruments, I own many, so it is easy for me to allow her to experiment. If you don't, it is a good idea to start with things like the recorder. The fingering structure is similar to many woodwind instruments, and the price is right. The flute, clarinet and sax are all great choices once they can handle the instrument, and treat it with respect. For flute, contact your local music store and find out if anyone is offering the "Suzuki Method" for flute in your area. It is designed for young kids and provides a great foundation for the future. Good Luck GOOOOOOROOOOOO #endquote#
