We generally recommend that students be at least 8-9 years old to begin taking lessons. At this point, their adult teeth are in, which is recommended for successfully playing a woodwind instrument. Furthermore, most students at this age can usually read well and can handle the physical demands of playing a musical instrument.
However, we do understand that every student is different. So, if you’d like us to assess a young student, have questions about your own child’s readiness, or would like to learn more about our many different musical offerings, we invite you to contact us. Together, we can make beautiful music!
