The basics of any instrument can be learned fairly quickly, but learning to play an instrument well provides joy for a lifetime!
Help your child enjoy the process.
Learning a new instrument is a wonderful adventure, but there is no one size fits all answer. Some children will pick up musical concepts faster than others, and that’s okay. Everyone learns and grows at their own pace.
Don’t get frustrated if correct technique seems unattainable or a theory concept confusing! Help your child set small achievable goals, and celebrate each one as they cross them off the list.
Learning music is a life long journey!
Even famous soloists still have yearly “check up” lessons with a teacher to brush up their technique and make sure they are in top playing form. So if some goals seem impossible to achieve, remember to look at how far you’ve already come!
