One of my kids has been taking Suzuki violin lessons since he was 5; he's now 9. They start by memorizing all the music so they don't need to learn to play the instrument and learn to read music at the same time. He has been reading music for only the last two years or so. It seems totally counter-intuituve, but it really works. They are just like little musical sponges.

There were some kids in the same studio that would play their instrument with the same enthusiasm some kids play video games: as soon as they got home and for 2 hours straight. Needless to say, they sounded really pretty amazing for their age.

When I was in band, I didn't memorize any music until high school marching band.
