I had almost 10 years of piano lessons that I started at 6 years old. I was in the school orchestra in middle school, so I learned some violin as well. I don't have a violin anymore, but I do still play piano. I think age 6 or 7 is a great age to start a child with music lessons if they seem to have a knack for it. Not only are their brains still "spongy", but they're not too "cool" for it yet either.
