With this in mind, I’d like to get A to practice more. There are two aspect to this problem. First off, she usually doesn’t have to practice her music until the day before or the day of her lesson. This is not a good way to learn. Secondly, she does not go back and practice material she’s learned way back when. This is also not an ideal situation.
So, I came up with a plan, which I’ve hatched in the past but let it slide, so the ball is in my court on this one. My plan is to learn guitar myself, and have A teach it to me. We can start with her early lesson plans and she can teach me the songs and chords. This way, I get some basic lessons, and she can review the stuff that she no longer practices. How’s that for a plan? It’s a win-win situation, if I can stick to my guns, which isn’t always easy.
Then again, nobody said parenting was easy. Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to idit.biton for the pic.
