Electric Bass instruction: We usually start them out at 11 or 12 years old depending on hand size and strength. It is optimal but not necessary to start younger with nylon-stringed classical guitar before moving to Electric Bass. Acoustic Guitar instruction can start at 8 or 9 years old as long as you acquire an appropriate sized nylon-stringed classical guitar and are patient with progress. At this age, hand-strength can take awhile to develop and that is what most greatly influences progress.
