How to motivate your child to learn Piano

Parents can play a large part in maintaining student motivation by showing an interest in attending lessons and student recitals, monitoring practice instructions each week and seeing this is done regularly. They can buy recordings for their children to listen to, talk them to concerts and recitals and above all give regular praise and encouragement to their children.

Parents can offer treats to their children as incentives for quality practice. These may be to watch television, going to the pictures or buying something that the child has been asking for.

Good Piano Teachers should maintain a high level of enthusiasm for teaching. It is important to keep up to date with the latest teaching trends by attending workshops and conferences such as this: exchanging ideas and seeking advice from colleagues. Also important are attending concerts, reading music teaching journals and keeping up the performance standard.

Goal setting is an important motivating tool. Long term goals such as recitals, competitions and exams are well known incentives for conscientious students. Short term goals are just as important. Students need to be show how to set and how to achieve short term goals for themselves.

Piano Teachers should keep a certain amount of pressure on students making sure they are working to their full potential. Students will usually rise to the challenge, provided they know you have faith in their abilities.
