Music has always been a part of our home education curriculum, even though it was a big budget item that often required some creative financing solutions AND even though several of my children required a good deal of “motivation” to practice their instruments. My one regret is that I gave in to the reluctance to practice a bit earlier than I should have. I do take comfort in the fact that everyone participated in choir most of the way through.
Even so, this video makes me feel pretty good about the years and $$ and mom-stress spent on music lessons.
Moms and dads of reluctant rehearsers, persevere!
