    PARENTS:

    The study of a musical instrument is a wonderful gift that requires time, practice, patience,
    and encouragement. (and then more practice....)      

    Together we can make this a positive, lasting, musical experience for your child.

    Please understand, your child's success on a musical instrument is directly linked to practicing the skills learned during lessons.  Your child will need to reinforce these skills at home on a daily basis.  Although the beginning stages may be challenging, continued practice leads to success.
      
    Ways to help at home:
    Listen 
    Be encouraging
    Be supportive 
    Assist in scheduling home practice time 
    Be sure your child has the supplies needed
