I just stumbled across the Telemann biography at HOASM:

It says:
"by the age of 10 he had teamed to play the violin, the flute, the zither, and keyboard instruments."

No sources are quoted.

Does anybody know anything about this?

I suppose a cittern is more likely than a scheitolt-type instrument? There are known connections with Telemann and the mandora, and with duet arrangements for 11-course D-minor lute, but it would be interesting to find a cittern connection.
