I agree with musiclover in that it's important for the instructor to have experience teaching young kids.

Keep playing together! ..but don't rule out formal tuition. 3 1/2 isn't too young to benefit from some training, especially if the teacher has experience with younger children. Check with your local music stores for some advice of teachers who have this experience.

Well, I have a few friends who are composers/musicians and they all started around 4.

My great niece has always been interested in music. She could be crying & we could sing a little song & she would immediately stop crying to listen. She is now two & a half, she is starting to sing some songs that her toys sing. I don't know the age for formal training being started but it doesn't seem any time is too early for getting them interested in music. dkm.st

My 3 kids all started taking piano lessons at age 3 to 3 1/2 using the Suzuki method - the theory is that young children learn music the same way they learned to speak their native tongue, by ear. Prior to that, I did programs like Kindermusik when my kids were as younng as a few months old. It's great bonding time and it helped to teach me new ways to include music in my children's day (I am not a musician, my kids usually ask me to STOP SINGING!)
