Do want your childen to learn to play piano?
no.. lol.... piano too ex
i want my girl to learn piano.
but that's unless she want also .
if she dont't want then its ok.
i prefer to let her learn dancing~~ lol.. but if she choose piano then i wil let her have it too..
Only if they want to.
I was forced to learn piano, and the feeling sucks, so i wouldn't wanna do that to my kids.
I would definetely let my son go for piano lesson ... He would be so cool when playing it for his gf .... like the chinese song Tong Hua
Seriously if he does not want ... it is okie
i would hope for my kids to have what i didn't have.. learn piano, dancing, violin, join basketball team, netball, etc etc...
but again, that's if they want to
I would let my dear son try out lot of activities (if affortable), such as piano or violin, karate or wushu, drawings, swimming, etc... C where is his talent and interest, then let him focus on his interest... and stop the other activties he not interested.
If only he want.. i will let him learn and i can teach him too.
But he want to learn other thing that he is more interested i will let him .
would love her to learn piano..even my mum also want...but i think is toooo ex ....n dont think my house got place to put a big piano ....lolx.
Yup yup ! Violin also .
But also depends on his interest .
Only if Zann wants, i dont mind. depends where her interest is.
Think will let my 2 gals choose between piano or violin...anyway this is just to introduce them to the music world, if they are not interest, its ok, if interested, will let them choose whichever instrument they are keen when they are older...
How do you know if your kids are interested? for piano, you can start as early as 4?
My girl seems to be interested in piano when she sees my cousin playing and when I asked her if she likes it and want to learn, she will nod her head, but she is only 2? Does she truely able to express herslef? Other then answering me, she will play piano herself, as in toy one . And also when she sees piano, she will do the play piano action. Is it coz it's something new to her or she really like it?
i will let my boi be exposed to as many types of instruments, then let him choose which 1 he prefers....i was given that option by my parents n really thankful for that cos i now play e piano, guzheng and cello....
violin is costly if learn fm young cos gotta keep changing violins everytime they outgrow, which is really fast...my sis is 14 n she has 17 violins, she started @ 3yo....
tentatively i'm gonna try basic music classes at hm with my boy first...then maybe when he older, around 3-4yo then let him go for formal lessons....
i feel most impt is e TEACHER....if e teacher can capture e kid's attention n heart, n must be able to teach e kid PERSERVERENCE!!!
my piano teacher was a young teacher that made her lessons so fun, i enjoyed every minute of it instead of feeling like lessons were a chore!!!
my guzheng teacher was a different story, i was compelled to finish up e course if not i would lose my CCA points.....
my cello teacher was AMAZING! gentle patient old lady.....i'm still learning fm her though prices r sky high cos she is from SSO n is quite well-known world-wide....
if my dear son have got an interest or is talented..then will confirmed show my support by letting him learn piano. Else, wait till go school then join the band as CCA ..and its free..kekeke..
I think picking up an instrument to learn and play is a good investment for the child and parent. Musical skills are very sought after.
I dont have a muscial background infact I wished my parents made me play the piano. My hubby's side on the other hand is the musical side. All of them can play at least one musical instrument.
My father in law plays the drums, my mother in law guitar/bass, my bils saxaphone/drums & piano/guitar/drums and my hubby trumpet/drums.
So I guess even if we didnt force Ethan to learn something, he'll probably wanna learn how to anyway. Hehehe, it's in the blood.
But I would say yes to letting a child learn a skill. If not musical maybe art or sports or cooking or something...good to work on a child's strength, gives him/her confidence...
yes.. i wanna bring jabeZ for piano lesson.. but if he doesnt like it, then its fine for mi..
actualli, you can see if a child is musically inclined fm young....
like my boi, he loves rhythm....you tap a rhythm on e table, he will tap e same rhythm back for you....
n he loves to gather alot of things that make noise n start tapping them like drum (his wet wipes container, his toys, carton boxes, my brother's small bouncy ball, etc)...
n you can expose them to music first, without having to force them to learn...if your friend has a kiddo that is learning an instrument, can bring your kiddo to their house and watch their kiddo practice...or bring your kid to those free performances (outside esplanade or other places, sometimes SSO has free outdoor performances)....
or you can make your own simple instruments at home n play with your kid to catch their interest first
Empty vessels make the most noise
its depends on their own interest
ya i do want them to learn what i didnt learn at all
i will also give them the best of all
I am going to let my girl learn piano and ballet.
Actually I would like to let her learn fencing too.
I ever passby a fencing school at United Square and like what they teach.
Better to let children fill up with healthy activities than hang around with bad company, like me during my school days
it depends on my dear daughter. i used to learn piano too but lose interest in it as my mum always force me to finish my grade 8, and thus she made me quit my piano lessons and ever since i hardly touches the piano, i won't force my daughter to learn piano if she dont want cuz the feeling really suck.
