Here's a great TED Talk from Victor Wooten. I love how he approaches music, and appreciate it even more now that I have a daughter who's 2 1/2 years old. Just the other day, I was talking to my wife about her and music. I told her that I'd read on Wikipedia that Victor had started learning how to play bass when he was 2 years old, and that I wondered how Reggie Wooten had gone about teaching him. I told her that I wanted to learn more about it, and that last year, I'd gone online and looked at music schools in the area to get an idea about how young a student could be. This video answers a lot of that, in approach. Our daughter already loves singing, playing with my basses (even though to her they're all guitars) and with the Dora the Explorer ukulele I got for her last year (another guitar!) and wife's keyboard. She also plays drums on everything (including my bald head). So, in a big way, she's speaking the language already. I have to find the right way and right time to encourage her to continue.
