After almost a year of obsessing about learning to play the guitar and sing like Taylor Swift, Princess and I headed down to the local music store. After 4 lessons and 3 weeks of practicing, the excitement has worn off and she’s realizing what I kept trying to prepare her for: learning to play a musical instrument is hard work but can bring you a lifetime of joy if you stick with it.
Luckily, I have Kristy Glass as a resource for “getting your child to practice their musical instrument” strategies since she’s been doing this for four years and two kids. She should write an e-book.
If anyone else has any great tips on getting your kids to practice a musical instrument, I’d love to have a whole arsenal of ideas to pull from.
