Will my child cry during lessons?
Some children will cry. Children cry for different reasons. First, they are in a new environment with a new person. Second, they are learning a completely new skill. Our goal is to get your child comfortable and happy as soon as possible. Once your child learns their new skill and gains confidence they will not cry.
What if my child doesn't want to take lessons?
It’s in the best interest of your child to continue in their lessons. Remember the benefits and the alternative. At first, the child may have very resistant behavior – but eventually, the teacher will bring out THE BEST in your child. We guarantee that you will be indescribably proud of your child (and of yourself) for having persevered.
