Enrolling Your Child In Beginner Drum Lessons
Posted by admin On January 19, 2010 9:49 AM
You all know those people who have their children involved in so many extracurricular activities that the poor
kid probably recites his Spanish homework while playing soccer and taps on the bench with his fingers to
practice his piano lesson as he waits for his turn on the field. Just the thought of it is exhausting.
To be sure, there is enormous value in the extracurricular activities that schools offer and a lot of benefit to private lessons. However,
parents should be careful not to overwhelm a child with more activities than he or she can handle, for fear of exhaustion or distracting
him or her from school work.
Typically, one to two extracurricular lessons or activities per child is more than any family can schedule and manage. Before you
invest all that time and money into giving your child ice skating lessons, oboe lessons, beginner drum lessons or whatever else pops
up, you should ask yourself if he or she has a bent towards that field and sincerely wants to follow it through.
Now, there is nothing wrong with offering a few fun activities to a child just to let him or her explore some new subjects. The learning
experience and variety will show your child things he or she may not have been exposed to otherwise and broaden the child?s scope
of the world. The experience of trying new things is in and of itself a lesson to be learned.
So how do you decide between the beginner drum lesson and the cello lessons? Well, this will rely heavily on knowing your child well.
If he or she is very musically inclined, then perhaps you do not have to choose, but offer both courses and let him or her get a little
taste of both before narrowing it down to one.
However, if your family is extremely busy, then practically, the dates and times the course is offered may have a lot to do with what
you are able to work into your schedule. If the beginner drum lessons land on the night when you already have an obligation, then the
choice is simple.
We all know that things aren?t that cut and dry. Inevitably, your child will want nothing more than to have those beginner drum
lessons that fall on the night of your prior obligation. When it comes to music lessons, there is typically another tutor or course in your
If you are at a loss to find a music teacher in your area, stop by a local music store. Ask the clerk or manager for a referral of
someone offering lessons in the instrument you wish to master. Local music stores are filled with employees and patrons who also
love to teach music to others.
If the local music store is of no help to you, then talk to the music director at school, or even a music director at a local church. These
are people who are well connected to the music events and other music professionals in your area. These people will be able to give
you advice and direct you where you can find the best teachers for your child?s music education.
Once you have found a music teacher to offer your child beginner drum lessons setting a routine meeting schedule will help you keep
your family in order. Of course, after those drum lessons begin and you hear drumming at all hours of the night, you may wish he or
she had chosen the cello after all.
