It's a pretty common belief held amongst the entire culture of classical music that an early start is absolutely imperative for any musician to achieve any substantial level of excellence. If music were limited to grown ups it would be really quite bad by the standards we are accustomed to.
+1 AS. Except for the bruises covered up by their clothing. I for one am grateful to have parents who cultivated mediocrity and the opposite of encouragement. Likely at least in part a reason I have reached such a high status. Poor kids. At least others can enjoy their efforts while they suffer. Gotta look for the silver lining. T456

Who exactly are you speaking of? I have dozens of personal friends who are classical musicians, some extremely successful, all of which started playing music as a child, none of which regret starting as a child. Some of them lament having not starting even earlier than they did. None of them regret not waiting until adulthood to play music.
