Online PR News – 06-February-2013 – Richmond, BC – Tatiana Bandurina is a music teacher with over 30 years experience and has penned a book on helping moms and dads get their children interested in music. It is part music instructional guide and part secrets of parenting book rolled into a single, easy to follow read story.
One of the most important things to remember, Bandurina tells us, is that as a parent, you are basically molding your child every day. She states, “Your moods and thoughts imperceptibly creep into the consciousness of your kids every hour and minute of the day. Our little family members consider us, their parents, to be the authority in everything. And some of us manage to maintain that authority through the teen years and even until the end of their lives.”
Beginning with musical lessons is an important step, but if history is any judge, the statistics are well-skewed against the parents who have doubts. Only one percent of those parents who start music lessons have strong hopes of their children becoming competent musicians. The other 99 percent, according to Bandurina, “Do it and see what comes of it.”
Trying to force a child into musical lessons is tantamount to leading a child to depression and trying to compare the adult world to that of a child is even less effective. The best solution to having a child enjoy music, according to Bandurina?
“Find a good teacher who will suggest ways to teach children music on an individual basis. Then you, the parent, cooperate with the teacher for the benefit of the child,” Bandurina said.
Of course, this only part of the solution to keep children interested in music. The library is likely full of books on music lessons, tips and tricks but the best source of information comes from other parents.
“Moms and dads who share information about their child’s musical interest and tips for making practice playing musical instruments interesting and enjoyable is important. This is the best way to keep children interested in music,” Bandurina said.
