How old should my child be to play “this instrument”?

People ask “how old should my child be to play x?” My answer always is “I don’t know your child, every kid is different, but if he or she is interested they deserve a chance.” More often than not, they can. Any place that has hard and fast rules about age limits probably doesn’t know that much about kids. How did I teach 4 year old Connor how to play a drum beat? Innovation, and getting parents involved with practice. Anyone can play… and Connor is a stud!
