A few years ago we bought our daughter an acoustic guitar. We figured if she could learn early it would be better. With being homeschoolers, and my husband rocking at the guitar. We thought it would be best if he was her guitar teacher. However, like all kids she loses focus, and acted as though she wasn’t to interested. So this guitar was put down, only to be picked up when she was wanting to annoy mom.
Lately, she has been showing more and more interest, and I have been finding her sitting in her room trying to play. I am hoping in time she will concentrate and let her daddy teach her how to read music, and play some small songs. She is always saying how one day she wants to be famous and she wants to audition for American Idol.
She likes to joke and tell me she will be moving us all to Hollywood, and when she is rich she will buy me a purple convertible. I should get her to put that in writing for me. :)
How do you get your child excited about learning new things? Her problem is she is afraid she will fail. We have tried to explain things to her, that there is no such thing is failing if you at least try.
