According to research, children who can play musical instruments are less likely to engage in illicit drugs, premarital sex, and alcoholism. This is one of the reasons why parents are enticed to enroll their children in music classes. On the other hand, with all the musical instruments that could be played by children, how would you know which one is appropriate for your child?
The fact is that you can’t expect your 5-year-old to learn how to play the piano, not that it is impossible. There are some brilliant children in this world that can even start reading at 3! But, on an average, children are simply not mature enough to learn music. Therefore, the age of your child must be considered. Aside from the age, the size of the musical instrument should also be pondered on. If your child has a small stature, then he would be having a hard time standing up carrying a big tuba. That wouldn’t be a good scene, too. So, make sure that your child can actually carry the instrument without any difficulty.
