The study of music provides many benefits for children. They increase their capacity for work, concentration, willpower, their capacity for enjoyment, teamwork, and commitment to their peers, whether in the classroom, in the choir or in an orchestra.
To introduce the child to the world of music and musical instruments, it is necessary to know well their characteristics, their tastes, their way of being. Choosing an instrument can create a dilemma for parents. If the child can be identified with his instrument, everything will be easier. If not, the road will be a little more difficult.
The first thing is to be suredon't act on a whim From father or mother: 'I want to enroll my son in piano lessons. I always wanted to learn. That the same thing does not happen to my son / daughter '. The child has a lot to say in this and we may not have listened to him / her. Nor should we think of options such as the price of instruments as determining factors: 'They have given us this guitar. It's gorgeous! So we thought about what we want him to study. ' If we decide exclusively with this in mind, we are in grave danger of failing. There is no instrument more expensive than the one that ends up on a shelf. Other times, children are impressed by an instrument. 'I want to teach piano, like my friend.'
In short, the work to be done is clear: we must inform ourselves well, know the instruments and make our children know them. Let's avoid taking this action hastily.
Apart from knowing the children, we must know the instruments as well as the study options. It would be convenient to take the children to live concerts designed for family audiences, and observe their tastes as well as their interests.
Another important factor in choice of instrument it is the physiognomy of the child. Their height is not decisive for the first steps, in most cases we are talking about children of about 8 years old, who have enormous physical development ahead of them. There are small instruments for the little ones, which are replaced by larger ones as the child grows.
Finally, the logistical question. By now I take it for granted that we all know music studies will be an effort for the whole family. To the need to travel to receive classes, we must add that of transporting the instrument. Normally, after a few years, children can go to the center alone, but this will happen much later if the child plays the cello or other large instruments. The centers usually have double basses, so that the student does not have to transport their instrument daily, but many times we will be forced to transport it.
Some instruments require quite a few hours of practice to study and this will take up more and more time as the child progresses in his studies. But it is very frequent that the students of these instruments are later good students, with high marks in the general education.
