age

You are never too old to start playing music! I have 5 year-old and 65 year-old students. However, the youngest age depends on the instrument.

Keyboard/piano can start as early as 5 years old, but it depends on the relative maturity of the child. Guitar lessons with me start at age 10, depending on how strong the hand muscles are and if the body is developed enough to hold the guitar properly. Please contact me if you are unsure.
