Parents shouldn’t threaten to discontinue their child’s lessons because they aren’t producing the results that meet the parent’s standards. If your child enjoys their music lessons as well as playing an instrument, they’re getting many benefits by simply playing and experiencing music.
You want this learning experience to be a positive experience. And by giving them room to grow on their own terms, they may just surprise you by blossoming into a full-fledge musician!
Don’t forget this is your child’s experience. It’s healthy for a child to have a hobby that’s theirs. Like adults, children need an outlet too! The pace in the Bay Area can be stressful anyway and with all the demands and changes in these current times, children are experiencing stress and uncertainty as well. Music is a wonderful distraction, a creative therapy and a positive alternative to playing video games and “Surfing the Web”.
Do give your child the gift of some space and the opportunity to experience music at their own rate and interpretation.
Do offer support and encouragement. A parent’s support is always the key element in the child’s experience and success with their music study. Parental attitude, support and involvement are important factors in a child’s ability to successfully learn to play and enjoy music.
