Do You Have to Be Young to Learn an Instrument?

There is a bit of a lower age limit. Children can start music lessons around 4 or 5 years old, but for some instruments, they may want to be older. For example, kids should be 7 or 8 years old to learn guitar, as their hands may not be large enough to reach frets or wrap around the guitar neck.
