I learned over the weekend that a close family friend's daughter is interested in a trumpet for Christmas.
Interestingly enough and to our surprise, both the parents and myself play the trumpet (the parents no longer play.) She is a 4 year old and where she got the idea of learning to play the trumpet has bewildered us. I have a spare Old's Ambassador I'm willing to pass on to them since it's just collecting dust.
What is the recommended age range a child should start learning the trumpet? Do any of you folks have experience to share? We're all curious as we didn't start until we were at least 11/12 years of age. We feel that being a 4 year old might be a bit too early. Thanks!
