Whether your child begged to take piano lessons or whether it was your idea, you may eventually face a common problem experienced by parents of budding musicians: how to get your child to practice. Even if your child enjoys playing the piano and enjoys their lessons, it's very common for children to put off practicing, especially if piano practice interferes with things they'd rather be doing, like socializing with their friends or playing computer games.
- When your kids start approaching middle school age, they often begin developing their own tastes in music and becoming fans of certain bands. Concerts allow them to connect more deeply with this music and explore their interests, but they're certainly not ready to attend on their own at this point. Accompanying them to their first rock concert is a good way to properly acclimate them to the environment at such events and ensure they have good experiences when they are older and can attend alone.
