Every time I get my horn out to practice my 4 year old daughter is right next to me wanting to help. She will press the Eb key down while I am playing, because that is the only one she can touch while I stand and play. She is enamored with the saxophone. When I am playing a tune she dances around and has a good 'ol time enjoying the music. She is always asking me if she can practice with me. Most of the time I tell her sure and give her a plastic penny whistle or some egg shakers, and she has fun with that but gets bored quickly and is really wanting something more. My question is this, what can I give her to get her started towards the saxophone at this early age? A cheap plastic toy sax, a recorder, clarinet, an ol beater curved soprano? Have any of you faced this dilemma? I really want to give her something with a reed, so she can get used to that. Maybe one of those Xaphoon things, Ive seen on the internet. One thing I have done is instill in her a love for good jazz, she has been listening to good jazz since she was in the womb. I'm very curious of your thoughts on this, thanks.
