     For many parents, finding an instrument for their child can be a very exciting and intimidating experience.  When Dixie Huthmaker was an orchestra director, she wrote "Eight Questions to Ask If You Don't Have A Clue" for her students' parents. 
     Your child's musical success will depend on the quality of the instrument you choose for him or her.  A cheap instrument will not stay in tune, will need lots of repairs and will be very difficult to play.  Be very careful.  If the instrument is difficult to play, the frustration and embarrassment for your child may translate into failure.

     As your child begins to play, you need to understand the parent's role in his or her future.  What does music do for a child?  How do you grow a musician?  In order for your student to get the most from their musical education, you will need to provide a quality instrument, set daily practice routines, provide private lessons, attend concerts and recitals, show encouragement and be a strong parent when times are rough.
      And be very proud.
