My son started at 18 months. We have a family friend who teaches him.

Depends on the 3 year old..

My son at 3? Too young.

My  middle daughter at 3?  Just fine..

My son was 5.  The biggest problem was he wasn't  reading.  I wouldn't do it again.

No, my three year old loves playing his guitar and singing in his microphone. I don't think it's ever too young too nourish potential as long as you don't push it or have too high of expectations.

I think it depends on the child. My daughter started taking dance lessons at 3 and is still dances now. I have known a few people who started their child on an activty young and the child lost interest after a few weeks.  I would look for a teacher who will allow you to pay month to month, and not force you to sign a contract, that way, if  your child decides he/she doesn't like it, you are not stuck paying for the time your child doesn't take the lessons.  The school my daughter dances at allows you to pay month to month and only charges you for the time the child is there.  I have seen alot of pre schoolers drop out after only a month as they just weren't interested in going anymore.

My sons teacher prefers them to start at 8.  They can read and do the math necessary at that age.  She is a college professor and has sent kids to Julliard, so I trust her judgement.
