Ways to Get Kids Interested in Music
Instead, think about how incredible it feels to see your kid beaming when he accomplishes something difficult. Mastering an instrument is quite a feat for anyone, especially a child, but the dedication it takes to get there is sometimes considered less than fun. Let's face it, most kids don't like homework (shocking, right???) and music practice can fall in that category. How to keep kids musically motivated:
- Hang out with your toe-tappin' toddler at the local music store to figure out what instrument gets him going.
- Start with an easier instrument like the recorder, which even a toddler can master. The boost of confidence will likely inspire another challenge.
- Throw him some words of encouragement when you catch a few practice notes. Who doesn't want to hear that they rule?!
- Set up a family performance so your kid can show off how good he's getting!
Whether it's guitar, voice or violin, nothing good comes easy and only the Best of the Best get that way with practice, practice, practice.
