Young pianists who are successful usually have one thing in common… great parents!
As we start a new term, it’s a good time to take a peek into the world of the piano parent and how much their involvement and attitude can shape their child’s journey. Trevor from Teach Piano Today has written a great article explaining this, so there’s no point me trying to rehash it.
I will say though that I had a learning experience very similar to his and it made all the difference in the world. My parents didn’t let my sister and I quit as soon as we felt either too challenged or bored (because both things will happen at different times), they were involved in our practise sessions and they certainly made piano a priority. We always knew it was a commitment.
Have a read through Trevor’s words here and see if you are being a secret weapon in your child’s success.
