Kids Are Overwhelmed!
Soccer, Water Polo, Gymnastics, Friends, Homework and the list goes on.
Parents sometimes feel that they want to expose their kids to lots of positive activities.
This year it’s basketball, last year it was gymnastics, next year it is something else.
This can lead kids to have lots of experiences of course but it may also prevent them from discovering what they really love and sticking with it through the ups and downs while they master a skill that they can appreciate for the rest of their lives.
I teach guitar and I strongly urge parents NOT to see it as just another activity in the rotation of activities. When kids take the time to learn guitar, they are developing something that can blossom into an incredible and life long wonder.
How do I know? Well, I started playing guitar when I was 12. It wasn’t easy for those first couple of years but I stuck with it and over time it has grown into a real passion for me. It’s something that has served me through my teens, early adulthood and now middle age. It is a source of expression, meditation, stress reduction, passion, connection with others and so much more.
I had awful lessons and terrible teachers as a kid and teen and that’s part of the reason that I’ve developed such an amazing guitar program for kids and teens that is not boring, is fun, interactive and helps them learn to make the music they love with their peers.
Whether it’s guitar or something else, help your children discover a passion or talent and help them stick with it and develop it so that it has lasting value in their life.
Did you know that very few kids continue their sports interests of childhood past their teen years. Not true for musical development. There, that’s my plug for guitar. Interested? Contact me and let’s talk about getting your kids involved in the amazing world of guitar!
