SUCCESS PLAYING AN INSTRUMENT – FOUR PARTS
- GO TO YOUR LESSON (SHOW UP TO CLASS)
- Practice at home, 15 minutes a day for a beginner
- Have a good teacher
- Have a high quality instrument, tuned and ready to play
Numbers 1, 3 and 4 are taken care of by the parents, teachers and administrators. We all see the benefits of music - the brain development, community connections, enjoyment, etc. The best instruments you can afford will help your child succeed and make the practice more enjoyable. A good instrument can make learning easier.
That leaves #2 - Practicing! This can be tricky as it requires some organization, but as a parent you can help support this too. See our blog on practicing. Here's some tips - try to let your child experiment with instruments until they find the one they really love the sound of and feel of! It takes some patience and our rent-to-own program is great because you don't loose credit (some restrictions.). We also have a wonderful staff that can help you anytime we're open to try all the instruments. They are very patient! Set-up a place to practice where it is quiet and without distractions. Set-up a block of time for regular practice everyday.
