Although even if they do start that late, it doesn't stop the dreaded braces!!! My two strongest solo cornets in the training band now have breaces! Its a disease! :lol:cornetgirl said:Putting my professional hat on I'd say it's ok to let a child blow down a cornet from a young age, but when it comes to playing seriously then it's best to wait until age 6-7 when the permanent front teeth are fully through into the mouth. Any earlier and poor technique could push the teeth out of line resulting in the dreaded brace!
Hope that helps!
