What is the best age to start learning?

Oksana Kolesnikova
As someone who has been teaching music for over 20 years, I have been fortunate enough to have taught students from every age group imaginable. And the one constant that I continue to see is the misconception by many adults that there's a certain “window” that their child needs to start learning music by. The age varies, depending on the parent, but the age limit seems to be around the age of 12.
