Music Instrument and School - Getting It Right The First Time

Introducing your child to music at a young age, no doubt, adds plenty of value to their lives. However, as a parent you must make sure that you are making this introduction in the right manner. Everything, from helping your child choose an instrument, to choosing the right music school that teaches children, is an important decision. This decision will determine whether or not your child plays music for the rest of their life.

Choosing An Instrument For Your Child

Most parents introduce their kids to music around the age of 6. If you choose to enroll your child before that age, Helene Goldnadel recommends you to make sure that your child understands why you are making them play an instrument. You also need to understand the limitations that you may be faced with. Enrolling a child for a guitar lesson in Singapore, for example, at this age makes no sense. Instead opt for piano or violin lessons. Both these instruments make a good base for other instruments. As your child grows up and experiments with other instruments, keep their physical capabilities in mind too. For example, if your child had small hands, they may find it difficult to play the piano or a stringed instrument. The easiest way to figure out which instrument suits your child is to get them to hold it. Their comfort level while handling the instrument is the best test. Based on this you can decide if you should enroll them for piano, drums, guitar or any other instrument lessons in Singapore.

Finding The Right Music School

As important as finding the right instrument for your child, is finding the right music school. The first step is to ask for recommendations but these are not to be trusted right away. The music school that you enroll your child in can either nurture your child's love for music or put them off it for the rest of their lives - so choose carefully. You need to interview the teachers in order to find out what their education qualifications are in the field, how long they have taught music, how they conduct their classes, their fee structure etc. You should also find out what is included in the course they teach. Will your child be exposed to different styles of music? In addition to teaching children how to play various instruments, the music school that you choose in Singapore should also offer vocal lessons.
