Sometimes parents of piano students think all they need to do to support their children in piano lessons financially is to pay for their piano lessons. This is wonderful, but your financial support should not stop there.
Do not be afraid to invest a little extra in your child's piano future. Inspirational items including musical stories about piano lessons that build character and inspire students to achieve their goals are an important part of piano lessons. Reading to your child is an important activity that kids enjoy because it helps them feel close to you. Stories about the experiences of other musicians give depth to student's perspective and help them set goals that are meaningful. Musical games that the whole family can play are another great way to support your child in piano lessons with a fun activity.
Another great activity for the family is to keep a Musical Memory Book with photographs and journal entries your child can look back on as well as look forward to filling up with more musical memories. Another fun activity is to record your child's favorite songs as they learn to play them.
Enrolling your child in a piano club for kids is very beneficial activity that will challenge and support your child in piano lessons in a fun way. Enrollment in a quality piano club would include special gifts such as books, games, musical stories, piano lessons, a piano bag, free sheet music, and free mp3s, etc.
You can also give your child a subscription to a Piano Magazine. A Piano E-zine, or Internet Magazine, will include articles about piano lessons written for kids, and also include midi files of classical music and sheet music that is safe to download. Today's kids are part of the computer age and need to know how to use technology to advance their education. This is a great way to give kids a head start with technology as well as supporting their music education.
So do not be afraid to spend a little extra on your child in piano lessons. You'll be glad you did. Kids need as many resources available to them as possible to support their piano journey and to fulfill their musical promise.
