Question of the Week

Question of the Week

by Melissa Wimbishpianolessons

Do you think it is important for a child to study music even if they are reluctant?

My younger brother has been taking piano lessons for several years now, something I always wished I had been forced into. He has hated it for as long as I can remember and at 16 still dreads his lessons and recitals – so he claims – although I think he appreciates being praised after a performance.

What are your thoughts on the matter? Do you think that by making music a duty, a person is left with no choice but to resent music later in life? Or, do you think that just like math and science and history and language requirements, it is a skill that should be refined?

Educators, don’t be shy! Leave a comment!
