Music Teacher

Music is a tricky business for my son. He loves music and given some time with his toy keyboard he can play a tune by ear. But he doesn't like lessons as he has got a bad experience before. He said he was forced into practice sessions by his father where he is always reminded not to move a lot because he might break the violin and its expensive. In some ways its true that violins are expensive so you are not really suppose to move a lot but imagine practicing while being constantly reminded of the price of the violin? Not much fun.

He has got a chance to learn musical instrument this year in school. He ask for guitar lessons because we have a guitar at home. One that old and not as precious as the violin. 

In the last days though I get exasperated when I asked him to practice but he doesn't listen at all. And then one time before he went to sleep we had a talk. I am asking what can I do to inspire him to play more? He cried. He said that me always reminding him to practice brought back memories of his father nagging him to practice his violin. In some ways I had become his father without me even realizing it.

I apologized but told him that the only way that he will learn to play is if he will play it a lot. He said he will practice in his own time. I almost didn't believe that he will. But I said okay. You are in charge of your own practice time. And I will not nag about it. Because I don't want him to have a bad relationship with music.
