Parents are to Blame if their Children Quit Music Education
80% of children quit music education because of their parents.
Richmond, BC September 01, 2009 – Students of lower socioeconomic status who took music lessons in grades 8-12 increased their math scores significantly as compared to non-music students. But just as important, reading, history, geography and even social skills soared by as much as 40%. These numbers highlight the need for early and constant music education.
Unfortunately, the majority of children lose interest in music lessons during the first eighteen months. Tatiana Bandurina, author of Voices of Our Children: Stories of Music Education, states that 80% of children quit music education because of their parents. The remaining 20% go to unprofessional music teachers and extra family surrounding of the child. In many cases, parents can’t find the necessary information about what their part is in the music education of children.
Your child can learn music with pleasure and not under pressure! Tatiana reveals the mysteries of parents’ strategies in music education and shows you simple examples from the lives of other families. She describes advantages of music education and helps parents avoid the many difficulties they often face when first starting children in music classes.
