How come my child doesn’t want to practice piano? Don’t give up yet, let’s take a look at some common reasons.
If you have signed your child up for Bay Area piano lessons and they don’t seem interested in attending, don’t worry this can happen sometimes. Many parents make the assumption that because their child doesn’t want to practice playing piano that they have no interest in learning to play. The reality is that there are many reasons that your child may not want to practice, and once you identify them you should be able to overcome these obstacles.
One common reason that many children don’t want to practice playing the piano is that they feel a bit overwhelmed. Kids today have so much going on that they often feel as if they are spread too thin. It’s possible that your child has too many activities and responsibilities at their young age, and it’s just a bit too much for them. Feeling mentally worn down they may simply lack the energy needed to devote to practicing. One way to help solve this issue is to try to streamline your child’s activities and get them to focus on what is really important.
Another common issue for children that don’t want to practice is that they lack the encouragement to work on playing the piano. As an adult it’s often easy for us to forget that children usually lack the ability to focus on goals and need external guidance to do so. Your child may not realize it now, but learning to play the piano is a skill they will get great use and joy out of later in life.
