Violin

Students may begin studying violin as young as age 3 1⁄2. Instruction is offered in a traditional private and group lessons, or Suzuki program.

Viola & Cello

Recommended age for beginning studies in viola and cello is 5 years old. Traditional private and group lessons, or Suzuki program.

Guitar

The recommended age for beginning guitar lessons is 7 years old, because guitar playing requires a fair amount of pressure on the fingertips. A smaller guitar and nylon strings are best for an enthusiastic younger guitar student.

Woodwinds & Brass

(Trumpet, flute, clarinet, saxophone) Woodwind and brass lessons can be started at the ages of 8 or 9. This restriction is due to the size of the instrument, as well as the need for more mature lung capacity.

Voice

Most teachers recommend starting formal voice lessons after a child’s voice changes
in puberty. However, children can start as young as age 6 with general singing lessons. These lessons do not involve formal vocal technique, and will instead focus on the basics of breathing, musicianship, and singing on pitch.
