There Are Four Essentials to Learning A Musical Instrument

SUCCESS PLAYING AN INSTRUMENT – FOUR PARTS

  1. GO TO YOUR LESSON (SHOW UP TO CLASS)
  2. Practice at home, 15 minutes a day for a beginner
  3. Have a good teacher
  4. 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.
