It is never too early to expose your child to music; Even babies in the womb can gain cognitive benefits from hearing music. Children between the ages of 0-9 have the highest potential for developing a love and understanding of music but knowing the right age at which to start formal lessons or group music lessons can be challenging for a parent.
The most commonly recommended age for starting private music lessons is between 5 and 7 years old. Kids in that age range have developed a bit of classroom etiquette and have begun reading and writing. Both of which are essential tools in the process of learning music in a more structured environment such as private lessons. Children under 5 will benefit greatly from larger group music classes which involve more physical movement and music appreciation.
