Tips for Parents

  • Find a special spot in your home for your child to sing or play an instrument.
  • Establish a time or each day to practice their singing or instrument playing.
  • Positive feedback for your child will set them ups or success!
  • Musical sounds take time and practice, refrain from negative remarks about your child’s playing.
  • Take your child to see professional and amateur performances or show them musicals and movies that show positive role models in the music industry.
  • Sing and play with your child! My favorite memories growing up are from singing a variety of music with my family.
