Enhanced Learning for Young Music Students: Involving and Motivating Parents
Briscoe, Diane
Music Educators Journal, v103 n2 p41-46 Dec 2016
Factors that determine the rate of a child's progress on a musical instrument include the quality, quantity, and regularity of home practice. Because a young pupil sometimes lacks the skills necessary to practice independently at times, music teachers could encourage and motivate parents/guardians to participate more fully in their child's music education. Sandler and Hoover-Dempsey discovered a number of variables that seem to influence parents' willingness to become more active in school-related activities. These findings provide music teachers with insights into how to motivate adults to become more involved in their child's music lessons.
