When children learn to play piano, test is actually patience of parents.

Learning to play piano is destined to be a lonely and long practice, and only perseverance can we achieve anything. The same is true for learning to play piano, and same is true for learning, why not?

After 40, people often miss money

But those things that have been preserved for over 20 years!

Among other things, people who learn to play piano don't usually regret learning to play piano as adults, but regret that they didn't work harder earlier to learn better; Nothing can compensate for this age!

Learning to play piano doesn't have to be famous or have a family, it's about perseverance

Many parents will face this problem: when child first started learning to play piano, he was very enthusiastic, but after a while enthusiasm faded, and practice became less and less attentive, and there was no progress. ideal. The most embarrassing thing for parents is to give up? It's a pity to give up halfway, continue? They are afraid that "twisted melon will not be sweet", and become confused.

The following is an excerpt from an exclusive interview with internationally renowned pianist Liu Shikun that may inspire struggling parents:

(Liu Shikun)

Reporter: How did Mr. Liu learn to play piano?

Mr. Liu Shikun: Learning to play piano is very difficult. Not all children can study hard. It's normal for them not to want to learn after a while. Parents allow their children to learn piano, or send them to learn piano according to their own requirements. Most of them do not want their children to become famous and famous all over world. So when child doesn't want to continue, parents will say, "Oh, don't study if you don't want to study. Anyway, our child doesn't want to be a pianist in future, so child "reasonably" gives up halfway through. If you ask me this question on behalf of parents, my personal point of view is this: if a child does not want to learn, they should be allowed to learn because learning to play piano has never been fun, pastime or game!

I also want to say to parents of children who study piano: learning to play piano is a school job, just like children go to school and do their homework. Some parents believe that if their children are not interested in learning to play piano, then it is better not to study, I mean: do not ask your children, ask yourself! The psychological characteristics of children by nature “come and go quickly”, their interests are prone to change, games are especially interesting, if they do not play, they will soon get bored. At this time, parents should take it seriously, if parents let go, children will definitely not study well. Some parents think that playing piano is fun, cultivating elegant taste, and it is a pastime when they have nothing to do. Parents who hold this mindset will find it difficult for their children to learn to play piano well. What to do if child is not interested in homework? Parents will definitely not say “don't write if you don't want to write”, if you can take same measures to discourage children from learning to play the piano, then all difficulties will be solved.

Parents often think like this - twisted melon is not sweet, how can a child study well if he is not interested? In fact, key to learning to play piano is not interest at all.

Children love to play, and it's okay for them not to insist on playing piano. As long as parents have confidence, determination and perseverance, children will be able to study well; conversely, if parents do not care about this and rely only on children to learn on their own, then there will be no possibility. guarantee. The key to learning to play piano is not being interested. Children who are not interested will not learn worse than those who are interested, and children who are interested will learn no better than those who are not interested. piano. Or you can say that there is not much difference in effect of practicing while crying and practicing with a smile.

Reporter: For a child who is relatively nervous about learning, how much time do you need to practice piano every day? Do you rely on your own perseverance or family discipline to further your achievements?

Mr. Liu Shikun: I started learning piano when I was little, and practiced for 45 minutes a day. My father was strict, and if I didn't practice seriously, I would be beaten. 3-year-olds do not know what future and ideals are, adults give them practice, and they do not know how to combine achievements with ideals and future. I think parents should encourage, guide, reward, and appropriately add grandeur and compulsion to enable their children to study hard. The so-called "unwillingness to study well" is directed at adults, and we should not apply adult thinking to children.

Finally, Mr. Liu used two metaphors to describe piano learning and practice: First, piano lessons are like working in a workshop. It's hard, boring, boring and depressing work. If you give up halfway, it's better to see it clearly in advance and have enough confidence (not about child, but about parents) to constantly encourage child to learn.

He told reporters that looking back on his journey of learning to play piano, he "never felt relaxed, happy, enjoyed or entertained at any time." So-called achievements are for society and for others. After he became famous, if you ask him if he would like to perform, he will say yes, but this is in terms of "serving people", in terms of a sense of duty, responsibility and mission as a musician. Not in terms of "interest". Besides, playing piano is like making a movie: sitting in a movie theater and enjoying a movie is certainly nice, but process of making a movie is extremely tedious and even painful.

That's why he advocated for parents to let their children learn when they don't want to learn! Because learning to play piano can really train will.

When your child masters piano well, he will appreciate your patience, rigor and perseverance. Simply put, children who learn to play the piano test their parents' patience.
