Future Piano Lover or Hater?

Is this going to be another piano student who gives up because she was forced to play piano? Or will she grow up with the joy of music making in her heart?

Most likely, this student will abandon the piano and learn to hate music...especially classical music. It doesn't have to be this way. Children love music as much as adults do; maybe more. Let them move towards the instrument that calls to them. Don't force them to learn piano because you want them to acquire certain "skills" that might benefit them in life.

Because they will learn two things if you do force them: 1) that they don't know what they like themselves, and 2) how to hate the piano!
