If you are a parent of a child currently taking music lessons, bear in mind that this is a long-term commitment. Your child is not going to show jaw-dropping improvements week in, week out. There will be ups and downs, and the child will need to learn to persevere through the tougher times. Parents will need to be supportive, patient, and strict at the same time. To quit learning when facing with difficulties is definitely not a good idea, we should instead use these opportunities to build stronger character in the child. Besides that, all of the years spent in music education will yield its benefits as the child grows up.
