They say it is like riding a bike. They also say that the best time to learn how to swim is around infancy would you believe. An interesting thought given that there are many adults out there who cannot swim to save their lives. And a sad thought in a way when you learn that there are just so many adults out there who never learned how to play music. Try teaching childrens music los angeles ca classes to a group of toddlers and questions may be asked of the teacher’s sanity.
Unless of course, the teacher happens to be a genius, a maestro of sorts who brooks no compromise. A hard taskmaster. But surely not around young children. And unless of course, one of those toddlers has genius potential as well. Not impossible. It has been known to happen. But in general, the best time to learn music may well be at the youngest age possible, reasonably speaking, of course.
Good parents may have missed opportunities when they were young. They should not let such opportunities pass their young ones by. Even if it appears to be a whim or a passing fad, parents should not turn their backs on their children’s given enthusiasm. The one concern that seems to hold back a lot of decent parents, and their young children, is that matter of cost. Children’s music lesson fees can surely be negotiated.
And there may never be any need to purchase a violin or piano straight off just as long as the young child has liberal use of the music teacher’s instruments. Look, if underprivileged LA kids can be taught to play music then surely so can yours. It is a good time to learn how to play music.
