Music practice

This scene is typical of my life.  I spend many hours each week helping my kids with their music practice.    I enjoy it - mostly, when there aren't tantrums of frustration.  After helping my kids for almost 7 years I think I have learnt a lot about how to help them and have grown in new depths of patience.  There is still a way to go!

Interested to hear more on what you've learnt about helping your kids to practise

The best book I've seen on this is Cynthia Richards' How to get your child to practise ... without resorting to violence, which is no longer available, but summarised on our Mitchell Con blog.

Aussie author Phillip Johnson's Not until you've done your practice is also worth reading and still available.
