Why Does a Young Musician Need to Learn Music in Classrooms for Vocal Training and Performances?

I won’t be telling you a big secret if I say that parents are the child’s most important mentors that bear almost all of the responsibility. They’ve got a big job on their shoulders and if they decide to provide the child with musical education, then the responsibility for the outcome also doubles even if he’s learning music in classrooms outside.

If you have a talented and creative child at home then he, more so than regular children, needs inspiration and friendly support. And who can be more supportive if not the parents?

In order to facilitate the studies and maintain interest towards the lessons, and to turn daily music practices into entertainment, you have to arouse his interest. One of the ways to sustain the desire to learn and continue musical education is to send him to learn music in classrooms to engage in vocal or group performances in front of an audience.

Every private music teacher understands the advantages and benefits of public performances for children. And some, who have 10-15 students in the class, plan and conduct small concerts for parents from time to time. But if your child goes to learn his music in classrooms, he’s likely to be exposed to the concert activities. Solo and group performances are very good for shy children. Being on the stage in front of the audience will instill self-confidence in them.

There are three major pillars of music: composer-performer-listener/spectator. If you were to remove one of them, having two others would make just no sense. Let’s have a look.

Composer can write many sonatas, symphonies, any other music pieces, but if there’s no skilled musician or an orchestra to play them, all of the composer’s work would be useless.

Now let’s imagine that the composer, who wrote a piece, is also a performer and will be able to play it but there will be nobody to listen and appreciate it. The question here is: what was the purpose of writing the music if the composer is the only one who can enjoy it?

As you can see, both composer and performer need someone else, namely the spectator; it is he who will value the work done. Playing music in classrooms as a student has the benefit of having an audience.

Your child, even if he is just starting out, has to understand why he needs to achieve and perfect the masterly performance. There has to be someone else who listens to him play besides himself. And only then the laborious and titanic work of a musician can be appreciated. This is the importance of playing music in classrooms. Even you, dear parents, remember what motivated you to sign up your son or daughter for music lessons. When you brought them to their very first music lesson, you dreamed that there will be a day when your child will be able to play something extraordinary in front of friends or family with his little fingers. Isn’t it so?

Your young musician has to constantly feel and realize that his art and mastery can have an immense impact on other people’s lives. By playing for someone, he immediately turns into a magician, who, using his talent and diligence, is able to make the audience laugh and cry, think and amuse, become sad and even get angry!

And for that to happen, the child needs to have a gradual psychological preparation which happen only if he learns music in classrooms and gets support at home.

What do you need and who do you need for a child to understand the power of his talent and diligence? Is it a good music teacher? The teacher does play a big role, yes. But he meets the student two or three times a week for 30-60 minutes. So who will be instilling self-confidence in a child and make sure his love for music is maintained?

It is you, dear parents!

Only you, moms and dads, grandmas and grandpas, the closest people in a child’s life, who know him the best would be able to disregard his mistakes and shortcomings (after all no one is perfect!) and start noticing positive results and success.

Praise your child more often, support his every successful attempt to perform a music piece during every home practice after he learns a piece of music in classrooms. Praise him even when he is only learning a new part or memorizing a new technique.

And remember that you have to ignore all mistakes without any exceptions, and hear and say only positive things. By doing this easy job, you, dear parents, will be able to create a young genius even if he had very basic and mediocre music abilities when he first started learning music in classrooms!  

There will be more information on how to organize and prepare your child’s solo concert at home in my next article.
