I love to listen to you play!

Have you told your child that lately?  Especially when they are working hard at mastering chord transitions, or scales, or some other type of tricky piano skill?
You can not encourage your child too much, definitely push them to keep going, but do take the time to be genuine in your praise.

I remember playing the piano in high school, my piano was in my room, so I practiced in the basement most of the time.  I was rarely in front of an audience until our spring recital each year.  I was the oldest student, so naturally my pieces were much more advanced than the majority of 2nd and 3rd graders who were part of the studio.
My piano teacher had a gift for choosing music that would be appealing to the general audience, so I usually got to finish the recital with something that everyone just loved.
Hearing all the younger kiddos come up and say "wow!  I loved that song" and their parents encouragement and praise, was such a welcome change from my basement practice sessions.
It made all the difference and inspired me to go on.  The passion had to come from within, but the encouragement to keep going certainly comes from the outside as well.

This is a neat article with a great reminder to tell your kids, I LOVE to watch you play.
Six words you should say
