Is my toddler too young to start music classes? Is my teenager too old to take piano lessons? Children can start on violin at age four, but did you know that they need to wait until age nine for trombone? How can parents learn what to do?
The truth is: You are never too young or too old to start making music for the first time. Whether you’re hoping to start your child on a lifelong journey of musical development, or just curious if playing an instrument or singing in a choir will resonate with them, there are endless reasons to sign them up for music lessons or classes today. For instance, music students show better memory, vocabulary, and reading levels over the course of a year, and are more likely to pursue higher education.

Merit’s music education experts have put together an easy guide for what music lessons or classes are appropriate for your child, no matter their age.
