What kind of expectations should you have for your child to succeed at playing the piano?

 
I canít tell you how many times I have heard piano owners declare how their parents forced them to study the piano and how they were turned off and gave it up at an early age. Then they confess to me that they really feel bad about it and wished that they hadnít quit. Very often, these types of confessions occur when they hear someone who is an accomplished musician play.

When it comes to learning the piano, there seems to be as there is with many things, a hump or a threshold that the student and the parents have to get over, in order to start reaping the benefits and to begin seeing the value of ones efforts paying off. I think parents have to understand the benefits and the challenges of their child playing the piano and it is crucial for parents to understand that their ongoing involvement is a major key.

Values

The trick for parents is to support but not to force their child. Parents need to be facilitators. Parents can help create the setting for their child to desire playing.
Is there a musical focus at home?
Does the family listen to quality music? What is quality music?
Where do your childís energies go during the day?
Does the family often do things together as a group?
Does your child watch hours of TV or play video games or spend excessive time on the internet?

You see, the unfortunate thing about our culture in this day in age is that there is tremendous and excessive quantity of information, stimulation and baleful draws on families and children. The reason that learning the piano or any musical instrument by far surpasses any other endeavor for your child (sports and computers) is that all the bad things that we want our children to stay away from are mutually exclusive from musical achievement. They are mutually incompatible.

So this is my advice and belief. Having your child learn the piano is all about your family values. It is not hip, it is not pop. But it goes hand in hand with higher achievement and higher thinking. The expectations that you have for your child have to begin with this foundation and perspective for your child to succeed.
