Consistent practice is the key to success. Rare is the child who will practice without being reminded. In order to make the most of the investment in music, parents need to be willing to encourage their children to practice daily.
Music education is one of the best gifts you can give your child. Research shows the lifelong benefits are many. I'm passionate about what I do and a strong believer that, as Dr. Shinichi Suzuki said,
“Teaching music is not my main purpose. I want to make good citizens. If children hear fine music from the day of their birth and learn to play it, they develop sensitivity, discipline and endurance.
They get a beautiful heart.”
