What is the right age to start a child on an instrument?
This is a difficult question and there are many answers to it! In some music schools, the world over, children start an instrument as early as 3 or 4, or as late as adult beginners. The MMMF welcomes both children and adults. The Foundation suggests 6 or 7 years as a good starting age, as children who start an instrument are expected to commit to daily music practice, for which we need a certain level of maturity and commitment.
Where can I buy music books and instruments?
The MMMF has a good working relationship with Furtados Music for the purchase of instruments, music books and other music accessories.
