This is a common question we get from parents of young children leading into starting lessons. It’s also framed as an objection by parents about why their child isn’t ready or quits lessons. So what’s the deal? Like with all things music, it’s an art, but there is science to it too.
Ultimately this question is about attention. Will my child be able to focus, sit still, engage and benefit from the experience. Here are some considerations for you either if this is something you are wondering about or struggling with, with a child already in lessons.
As with all things here, we believe in individual approaches with lessons tailored to each student. If we have a student struggling with attention we will do what we need to in order to address that with them and keep the music going.
