    I started in second grade.
    There was a sax player who was even younger, he started on an curved soprano sax. He could really play! Robert Eugene Peppi, I will never forget that kid.
    I don't think he continued playing after high school.

    I don't know about you folks, but I wish someone had gotten me interested when I was that young.

    Alex, good point on the growing into the horn... etc... not so sure a temp brace would work though. I would think he would need flat surface... if I understood you correctly.

    Alexandria, VA is the old stomping ground for BANDMAN and I. Although I don't know the kids teacher personaly, I have heard of him to be an excellent teacher.

    I don't know about anyone else, but for me, the things I was interested in as a 4 year old are certainly not the things that interested me 10-15 years later.

    I didn't even start to excel at trumpet until I was 13 and had been playing for aver 2 years.

    It will be interesting to see if the little phenom can maintain it and keep it going.

    It's sad to say, but on "Satin Doll" he swings better than some people I know.

    An interesting thing with Carole and Geoffrey was that when their mother saw what they did (Carole used a slide trumpet btw), they both showed the kid how to produce a sound. This was crucial for Caroles mother.

    Pip Eastop, horn player in UK, has a nice website about how his son, Zak, learned to play the alto horn (called tenor horn in UK).

    Zak startet at age 4.

    P.S.
    The best classical trumpeter in Norway, Ole Edvard Antonsen, started at five.
