  • One son played saxophone, but not until high school, and second son played piano. If you can afford lessons you might want to see if he/she enjoys it. Lots of music stores will rent the instrument while the child figures out if they are really interested.

  • My oldest and youngest are the musicians, saxophone, drums and electronic keyboard (can also play piano). My oldest is trying to get into a Jazz band (he's 24)

  • My toddler plays the keyboard. At least, she thinks she does. Mommy plays "plug in the headphones so you can hear it better" so that she can experience her full creativity without the high pitch electric screeching going all through the house.
