Build Your Child’s Confidence, Foster Their Creativity, and Give Them a Strong Work Ethic with a Music Education
A quality music education will be one of the best things you ever give your child.
Study after study proves it: A great music education makes kids smarter, more resilient, and more compassionate…in ways nothing else can.
But there’s a catch…
Most kids miss out on all of that.
Because they quit.
And it’s no wonder.
Once the excitement wears off starting music lessons, keeping the fire going gets harder every single day.
No one tells you how much hell you’ll go through to get them to practice.
And once they finally start practicing, no one teaches them how.
There’s this idea out there that helping your child practice is a “bonding moment” that comes naturally. When in reality it feels more like an hour session of pulling out your hair, convincing them to get something – anything – done before they give up and throw their instrument down.
You start to feel solely responsible to keep them interested enough to stick with it. After all, if you could just get them to see how great they could be, they’d start pushing themselves to practice…right?
But after a while, the tug of war becomes too much to handle. And after one too many bad practices ending in tears or another tantrum, everyone starts to think they just don’t have the strength, the stamina, or the talent it takes to keep going.
So they give up, stop playing, and walk away feeling defeated.
And it’s not fair.
I won’t stand by and watch it happen anymore. Not on my watch.
There are reasons why this happens over and over again to so many kids and parents: reasons that have nothing to do with strength, stamina, or talent.
I want to teach you everything I know about making a music education really work for your child: one that doesn’t involve you becoming a crazy tiger mom, or wasting hours convincing them to practice.
There are too many secrets I can spill to you about how to make practicing easier, find the perfect teachers, get into great camps, and make recitals a huge success.
Because the truth is, all of those priceless benefits that come from a great music education can happen for your child. Not only can they happen, you should expect them to happen.
But you need to know how to use their music education to get those benefits. Like what moves to make, how to guide them, what to say, and how to deal with the frustration that comes along with learning to play an instrument.
Music lessons are your short cut to making your child unstoppable.
Creating an interest in music is just the first step. Keeping them there? That takes a little more.
But you don’t have to do it alone. This is what Practice for Parents is all about. Join us.
Let’s make your child unstoppable.
I’ll never share your email address with anyone – period.
I’m an award-winning musician, passionate about practicing and teaching.
I’m also an overachiever, coffee addict, and list maker. I have a horrible relationship with my curling iron. And unless you want a plate of eggs or bowl of brownie batter, we’ll need to go out for dinner.
I believe a music education, coupled with fantastic parenting, will give your child the confidence, creativity, and work ethic they’ll need to achieve any goal they want in life.
I also believe most parents have no idea how to do this really well without wrecking the relationship with their child or turning into one of those scary pushy parents they swore they’d never become.
So I take psychological studies, music skill building tips, and my 20 years of personal experiences as a performer, teacher, and student and blend them all into simple actionable steps you can use to unleash your child’s potential.
Think this whole music thing is just about music? Think again… Check out this quote from someone you may have heard of.
Now I’m not saying your child will become the next Einstein. But become the next CEO of a major company? Maybe.
There are a lot of struggles that come with this incredible journey. I’d like to help.
