Piano Lessons In Ashburn, Virginia
Is It Possible For Kids To Learn Music Quickly And Easily?
Kids love music… So why does it seem that kids don’t like learning music or taking piano lessons?
Often, teachers pin students down and force them to choose between two options:
#1 – Practice the piano (an activity not enjoyed on an instrument not appreciated).
#2 – Make the teacher unhappy.
A child is forced to choose between what will hurt less and what will hurt more.
A “good” old-fashioned piano teacher is often merely someone who has figured out how to leverage the child’s psyche in their favor, so the child will choose to practice the piano – commonly against the child’s will.
I wonder where the line lies between “motivational tactics” and “bullying.” When a child’s cheeks flush with embarrassment because of a teachers harsh words, or when hot tears start to run down a little face… I would dare say that a line has been crossed.
This is a big part of the reason why piano lessons are so unpopular with children. Their environment is missing the spirit of “play-and-explore.” Instead of being anxiety free, anxiety is actually used as a weapon by the teacher for leverage against the student.
