What is the best age for a child to learn musical instrument like keyboard ,drums,guitar? Can they start learning when they are three years or even earlier? Can a child start Yoga class when he is three year old?

I didn't start kindergarten when my mother signed me up for music lessons, on accordian. I wanted to play organ, but there wasn't any room in the house (this was in the 60s, before thee portable organs came out) Now I'm learning violin which is quite a challenge - yet I have seen pictures of very little children, four years old tops, playing them.

I started playing guitar at the age of 6. I took lessons and could read music by the age of eight. I could only play notes at that time. It took a few years to master basic and bar chords. I then started learning chord solos and new several of them by the age of 12. From there it was on to learning blues scales and playing lead. I really enjoy playing the guitar and am very proud of how good I am. I'm also glad my mom put me in lessons at such an early age. I might want to note, not everyone likes the guitar or music. My brother who is one year older than I am dropped out of the lessons after a year.
