How Can You Help Your Child Practice at Home?
- Help them find a quiet place where they will be able to concentrate. I have to close my door when I practice because my dog does NOT enjoy the sounds of a clarinet!
- Have them play for you! Learning how to play in front of others, especially friends and family, is a great way to build confidence!
- Ask them questions about their instruments! A concept is not fully mastered until the student can teach it to others.
- Encourage and support them!! The beginning stages of learning how to play an instrument can be very frustrating because there is a steep learning curve. The best way to get better? Play the instrument more!
