From my experience, I would say that piano provides a very good musical background. I suggest exposing him to piano first and later on as he gains musically, you can introduce him to other musical instrument. And subsequently you can allow him to choose whatever instrument he like.

I'd say the violin trains hearing well. But then again, if a child loves playing the violin, he/she may not want to touch a keyboard at all in the end. The keyboard is not quite as difficult to learn as the violin tho, so you could probably hold that off. Piano keys might be too hard for a preschoolers fingers too.

I would say every instrument has it advantages and disadvantages.
First of all, piano's tune are fixed unlike violin.
So giving early exposure to piano is good for hearing and development.
Yes, it's true that violin encourage one to really listen to his playing, but without knowing the "correct" tune, it can be hard.

In terms of difficulty, they are more or less the same.
Both needs good finger and body posture and require them to read "tauge"
Piano difficulty is when it involves more than 1 notes and 2 hands.
It trains on both clef
Difficulty in learning violin comes from how to hold the violin, how to hold the bow and put / play it on the string.(apart from getting the right string & finger and tune) Notes wise, much easier.
Young children are advised to use keyboard, not acoustic piano straight away. In my opinion, piano is more suited to 7 y.o. and above.

hope this helps

Regards,

Joseph
