Your input is vital to your child’s musical success. Your encouragement and interest will be invaluable in ensuring your child’s progress.
Regular daily practice is of paramount importance for a student to make progress. Suitable times must be set aside to develop good habits. Please discuss this with your teacher.
It is essential that your child bring all material to every lesson.
Take time to listen to your child and give them every opportunity to play for friends and family. Expose your child to music appreciation, source instrumental music including the instrument on which they learn. Music appreciation is like opening a door into a new world.
