We all want our kids to be successful. We look for ways to help them find their passions. Once they follow those passions they start to grow from those experiences. In our house, music is a big part of our lives. From dancing to our favorite songs to discovering new music, we appreciate the power of music. Another way music has touched our lives has been from my youngest daughter taking up playing the saxophone. I highly encourage parents to talk to their kids about playing an instrument. There are so many benefits that come from them playing an instrument.
The Gifts Of Playing An Instrument
When my daughters started playing the saxophone it was a bit overwhelming for her. This was something that was totally new to her. Yet, she stuck with it and she is now being rewarded in so many ways. My wife and I are really proud of her learning an instrument and seeing it through. My wife and I saw her become more confident. That confidence was not just in playing her saxophone, but in other aspects in her life. Her teachers have been telling us how she is a natural leader at school. She enjoys trying new things. She even started playing the tuba as well at her school. My daughter is starting to play music by hearing it and not having to see sheet music.
Giving The Gift Of Music
For two years now we have set up lessons for our daughter through Music & Arts. She was a little timid in the beginning and wanted to do online classes. She enjoyed them, but last summer she wanted to do in person lessons at our local Music & Arts Store. Her teacher, Larry, did an outstanding job. He made the lessons relatable for someone who is just starting out. Larry was very patient and made sure my daughter was able to learn at her pace. In addition, all parents know how hectic their weekly schedules are for busy families. Larry and Music & Arts were very flexible to change a few dates around to make sure we got all our lessons in even if we couldn’t make the original lesson time.
When she started playing the saxophone she didn’t want to practice that much. Now she enjoys practicing both the saxophone and tuba. She will even play for the rest of the family with an impromptu concert from time to time. One of the best things for me as a dad is to see the huge smile once she plays a song for us. I am so proud of her. It is truly a gift to see all of the emotions that she has when she is playing her saxophone.
