Leave alone the luck to become a professional artist but how many are ready enough to go through the hardship of vigorous and regular practice. Let us talk about the topic here.
In my case my interest developed fairly late while I was in my teens. Mostly the elders are well settled in their life and try to acquire some thing else in their leisure time for their enjoyment.
Every front ranking musician says that one life is not enough to master everything in this art. Quite a few years ago, when I knew even less than now, I asked a violinist if they ever found themselves having to accompany ragas they simply didn’t know.
Age to start learning carnatic music –
I think he was a disciple of Sri Umayalpuram Sivaraman. I could sangretham understand how he passed even the preliminary qualifying test. Any claims either way are true in certain contexts. That is why even after the lapse of a month nobody responded to his post as most of them are either music-teachers who never want to respond to such harmful discussions or music-aspirants who do not have sufficient knowledge to discuss.
Unfortunately, no kids before the age of 10 years are allowed into any of the Govt. However this topic is very dear to me. You are paying them for their time, the same as anyone else, and you deserve to be given their full effort in your lessons.
Thus, as you wrote, the young sxngeetham old, both the guru and shishya are equally committed and dedicated for teaching and learning in their own way finding the difference only in the end of the show. Having recently listened to the successful-mini-music-concert of one of my disciple-kids, a gent at his age of 40 approached me to teach her daughter of 11 years age, who has been learning Gitas only since last three years, and I agreed.
What Mahesh3 wrote is the absolute truth. Even the scope for the people to learn this art is very limited hundreds of people are resorting to learn this art as hobby.
However, bringing out the bare truth always looks like absolute discouragement only. Formal lessons in vocal music can probably start when the child is 6 years. But of course, there are even profoundly deaf musicians, such as Evelyn Glenny, and many blind ones. Most of them want to learn music and some of them even try to learn instruments but will be compelled to become stranded at one point or the other due to their inabilities.
All your points are well sangeethsm and are very valuable observations, but why the first para in a negative way. Having no other avocation, they can concentrate far more efficiently than adults and learn music very fast and efficiently, of course, basing upon the efficiency of the teacher. So we cannot ever give a categorical answer to this question.
In fact, there has been a great facility sangeetjam our music having no yard-stick either to assess the level of knowledge of the teacher or the quality of the lesson being imparted by the teacher or the quality attained by the aspirant in course of learning and this facility is availed to the full extent by each and sanegetham music-teacher on the globe. It is the harsh truth.
As you wrote, as a critical-violin-teacher with umpteen failures at the first instance and later with many amazing results I have my overviews and experiences in this respect unlike many other Violin-teachers. Like any relationship, this one takes time and effort.
But, if it is of the later only the problem arises. However, as you wrote, our teachers are already available everywhere to, somehow, encourage them and not to let them give up their hope.
So why discourage people who come forward with sangeetnam true interest to learn music or an instrument? Having listened to one of my Lec-dems, recently, another gent, who appeared and passed the entrance test for B. But, it is entirely different with kids. Doing this will either make or break your relationship.
But make sure you are giving yourself the same respect that you are asking of your teacher. What I found was that if I had found my teacher in my teens, I could have easily become a performer. We should consider how we define “learning music.
I tried learning mridangam, starting at age It is an emotional topic since a lot of people who did not get a chance to learn music at a young age for various reasons believe or would like to believe that they can acquire reasonable competence and proficiency in carnatic music.
As we grow older it becomes more difficult to learn, mostly because of other preoccupations and preconditions. By all this, only to caution the common man of this anonymous persons I am compelled to bring this unhealthy negativity into my post for which I beg all your pardon.
