What would be a good instrument to start my 7 (on July 2) year old on?

She wants to get into an instrument but neither of us knows anything about any kinda instruments. Any ideas?

  • I liked violin at that age.But piano,violin and guitar are some of the easiest to get lessons and sometimes you can find someone to teach trumpet for unless she's really got her heart set on something else. They can all be a good way to learn music reading and to basically get them trained on musical processes and also can be easy to branch off from if she decides that she likes be that something with strings or one of the brass or woodwind instruments.

    One last thing if she likes having long fingernails I wouldn't go with string instruments.

  • Guitar. My son started when he was 6 and loves it 3 years later. They make really cute kids ones you can get at walmart for $30-$40 to see if is interested. If that doesn't pan out, you aren't out a crapload of money.
