Hi, say it and believe it. I started all my three boys on guitar at ages 10,8,6 . One dropped out, one plays bass, one plays fantastic guitar, good trumpet and drums and is a proffessional musician and music teacher now. Its far and away the best thing I ever did for him. In all other respects they may as well have had Charles Manson for pa, but giving them a shot at music was a biggy, in my opinion. My mum did it for me when I was nipper. Congrats.
I get a musical serenade every night while I cook dinner. He is very uninhibited (unlike his mother) about playing for anyone who will listen and has memorized songs already. I should send him out to busk. The piano lessons he had for the last two years gave him a great start- the smartest move we made.
I have been informed that he is ready to sit alongside me at rehearsals for Jazz and Concert Bands at the local college - because "Mom, I've been to your rehearsals and I could really play with you."
None of my three play sax, but between them I have recorder, clarinet, ocarina, would be bagpipes, cello, piano, double bass, electric bass, drums. And mummy plays piano, classical guitar and flute. I feel a fraud squawking on the sax.
