Around age 10 is an appropriate to begin playing bass. Younger children typically are not comfortable working with the instrument, as it is larger and the student must have strong hands to deal with the heavier, thicker strings. Playing the bass allows the student to play with all different types of ensembles, specifically jazz and rock styled groups.
