Look, I get it. I am a mom of a Suzuki violin kid, as well as a music teacher with private piano students of my own. NO ONE enjoys practicing. Not kids. Not parents. BUT practicing NEEDS to happen in order for kids to be able to play their instruments well. So where does that leave us?
I like to call it the DANCE. The dance I perform with my child while she is unaware that we are dancing. Some may call it mild manipulation…I think dance is more positive.
