ChildViolin

Among the numerous challenges that parents face in handling children’s music lessons (choosing the instrument, finding a good teacher, etc.), getting kids to practice is the most daunting of all!

Here at the My Musical Community Blog, I have written many posts related to this topic. The severity of the problem and the importance of practice make it hard to believe that there are so few articles addressing this!

The following article is a great example of one of the few articles on the internet that offer tips and tricks that will help students to get over the hurdle from “just practicing” to “making music”.
