Is 6 or 7 years old too young to start guitar lessons? My grandson seems so musically inclined, I would like to capitalize on that if he is interested enough. What indicator(s) might suggest he is ready to focus on lessons? Thanks!

I have thought as low as age 5 previously. If a young child can sing or hum in tune or dance or tap a foot or bob a head in rythem chances are they have a bit of natural musical talent. In the end musical talent is 90% practice and hard work and 10% natural talent. Music is like a sport anyone can play but whoever has the most passion and practices the most and has the best teacher does best. If your kid can sit down for half an hour and work on a task than they will do just fine.
