Parents are the Key to your Success with Children
Learning a musical instrument for children is about our relationship with parents more so than the child. This is because we can only give students the tools to learn and perhaps guide and monitor from week to week. The real work is done at home. We need to be teaching parents what to do at home. If you are not teaching their parents you are most likely failing with the child.
So if you feel frustrated because a child is not practicing or not progressing you need to tackle the issue of parent communication. If you have been through it with the parent and still no success then you a real problem. But goping through it with the parent means every week until the child begins to show progress.
If the parent never appears after several requests to the child you need to contact myself or Emma and we will call them and request they come along to the next lesson.
