Hey! I'm a father of three. My first two decided on instruments that I did not play, violin and drums, the third is leaning towards guitar and/or bass. Music is in the house so to speak. I've experimented with lessons and various teachers and have come to the conclusion that it is kind of up to the individual kid what works best - they are all different. Don't ever worry about "cloning the dad" ... if music is in their soul it will come out in an extremely unique way.
For the children!!
Hello there everybody.I need help with something;however,only those with kids might be able to help with this one(although i respect ANYONES opinion.)
: My son is almost nine.He is showing an interest in music(i started on bass when i was ten.)I bought him a bass,and have started to show him some things.
: My question;should i teach him myself?I can definitely get him started,but if he decides to continue,would he be be better off with another teacher?I feel that even though he shares my name,his own musical voice may not develope(he may become a clone of dad.)
: Some people have already said get him his own teacher.What do you guys think?
: Peace,and keep on groovin'!
