Do you know that piano is the easiest instrument to start learning but the hardest to master?

No wonder then that piano students have the highest drop out rate of any instrument learning course. 

So, how do you ensure that your piano learning child will not end up being one of those drop outs?

There are several ways in which, you can increase their success rate and in this post I am going to tell you just how you can help them do so. 


Be Fully Engaged And Learn With Your Child

Research studies show that parents who are fully engaged and involved in their children’s education often see better results from their children, when compared to those that are not involved. 

So, the first and best way to ensure success is to be fully involved. 

After all, as a homeschool parent, you have taken your child’s education in your hands, haven’t you?

Even if you are not a homeschool parent, make time to get involved in your child’s music education. It will definitely help. 

One of the main reasons that this strategy often works is because when parents are involved and start learning along side the child, they understand the difficulties and challenges. They also learn enough and understand their child enough to be able to customize the material to suit their child’s learning style. 

Thus, increasing the likelihood of success for the child. 

In my own experience I have seen that children with highly involved parents are more likely to have a higher level of success than those that don’t have parental involvement, and that is the reason why all my piano courses are geared toward giving parents (even those who have no musical background), all the tools that they need to teach their kids piano.

Let Your Child Teach You What He Learned

One of the best ways to learn, is to teach and that is why I often advocate that parents should let the child lead the way and then teach the parent. 

This helps with retention and also boosts confidence in the child, all of which are necessary for successful music learning. 

If you don’t believe me, just try it out. You will be amazed at what happens.


Celebrate Even The Tiniest Of Victories And Give Your Child All The Credit

This goes without saying. Positive reinforcement is known to be powerful. I totally agree with Carol Dweck and believe that we should be going for progress and not perfection. 

In the light of that, every little bit of progress that is made should be celebrated. Also remember to give your child the credit for all his hard work and tell him that if he stays on course, he is likely to be a very proficient musician very soon. 

So what are you waiting for? Go ahead and put these strategies into practice. 


Have you tried any of them in the past? How have they worked out for you?
