Learn Simple Steps to Becoming a Great Music Parent

It’s a lot easier than you think!

Arm yourself with the knowledge to support your child’s musical growth

Have you ever been (or are you about to be?) confronted with the task of supporting your child’s interest in a musical instrument, when you have little or no musical experience yourself?

It can seem a little intimidating. But it doesn’t have to be.

Helping your child with math and English class assignments is pretty straightforward. Why? Because you’ve been through those classes yourself—so you have a strong frame of reference for that.

But what do you do if you’ve never played an instrument, and your child comes home from music class with an interest in learning the guitar, the drums, the piano…or the trombone?!

Where do you start? What do you say? What do you do?

Relax. It’s much easier than you think.

That’s because in his new book, The Music Parents’ Guide: A Survival Kit for the New Music Parent, GRAMMY® nominated music educator, Anthony Mazzocchi, delivers an easy-to-follow game plan that makes it simple for any parent to be a great music parent.

  • Forget the myth that some kids are just musically gifted
  • Discover why music lessons are valuable lessons for life
  • Tap into a practical resource that makes being a music parent fun!
