Hi, We've been working with Oak Meadow's curriculums loosely for a few years now, and I've been looking ahead as I feel my son may need more in terms of music. He is 4 1/2, with an unusual attention span. He is on the tall side for his age, and I was thinking that maybe his hands and he are developed enough to begin to play an instrument. I was thinking of ordering recorders and books (so we can learn together). Is this too soon? I also remember some past issue of Mothering which talked about children and dulcimers. I play the flute reasonably well and am also interested in us being able to make music together. But, I'm also a strong believer in not pushing as childhood is precious and my son is quite precocious and pushes himself quite a bit. I try to be a more balancing influence. What do you think or what have you experienced with your own wee ones? Thank you!
