We all know about the benefits of piano lessons. However, as parents, sometimes we too often forget about the hard work that must go into the lessons. This blog article by a fellow piano teacher explains the work and joys beautifully:
As both a parent and a teacher myself, I too often forget. There is a lot of work, a lot of daily diligence in practicing and concentration. But the joy in accomplishment that comes at the end of hard work is an experience that you won’t want your child to miss. My advice? Set daily goals, set weekly goals, set monthly goals, set yearly goals. Encourage the hard work and praise the results.
Here’s to a school year of diligent work and rewarding beautiful music!
