choose the right musical instrument for your child

Your child will need a musical instrument if they are learning music. Even if the music teacher provides the instrument, the child will require their own to practice at home. However, buying a musical instrument may be a little challenging because it is an unusual purchase.

The following tips will help you to buy the right musical instrument for your child:

Do Your Research

Just the way there are numerous options available in everyday things you buy, the same is the case with a musical instrument. For example, there are classical, bass, acoustic, steel and electric guitars. So, if you are buying a guitar, read and understand various options to determine which one suits your child’s needs.

Find the Shops

It is usually difficult to find shops that sell musical instruments as they are very few and scattered across different locations in the city. While you can consider buying online, you have to rely on the information provided by the seller. You can’t touch and feel the instrument and check it on different parameters.

Hence, you should visit a local shop to get a better idea and make an informed decision. The local shops also offer repair and maintenance services.

Physical Features of Your Child

Your child needs to hold or play the musical instrument at certain angles or in certain positions. If they are playing a flute or trumpet, they need proper mouth placement. The size of the hands and fingers also matter, especially in piano and guitar. So, take your child’s age, height and other criteria into consideration to select the right one.

Cost of Instrument

Musical instruments don’t come cheap. Moreover, you also need to incur expenses in their maintenance and repairs to keep them in good working condition. Make sure that instrument fits into your budget. Compare different brands to find a good deal.

Ask the Music Teacher

Your child’s music teacher understands your child better than you from the musical perspective. The teacher has the best and wisest inputs to give when it comes to buying a musical instrument for your child. The teacher would also give you references for local or online shops.

Here are some sample reviews from parents, to help you to share your own experiences:

Best classes for mathematics in Erandwane/Kothrud area. Limited kids per batch and give personal attention. We had a very good experience. My daughter is happy with teaching by ***** teacher.

Very engaging and fun filled sessions for the kids .My 8 year old throughly enjoyed all the sessions. Kids get a platform to express their views on various topics. Suggestion is to make this workshop extended from 1 month to 2 months or more.

My child has made excellent growth. The teacher gives attention to every child adequately and my child is very eager to attend the classes. And the teacher also has excellent skills in art.

We have seen ***** school growing from a pretty new school to a developed school in last four years. They focus lot on academics, extra curricular  actives and lot more.  They embed a lot of fun activities with academics which makes kids picks the basics as well as advance topics pretty well.  Teachers are attentive and they provide a very elaborated feedback about the child on quarterly basis. In short it's fairly a good option for kids for their overall growth.

Highly mismanaged branch of *****. Poor planning. No proper communication with parents. Teacher retention is very low. Good teachers gets transferred to other centres. In past 3-4 years 3 principal changed. Everything they do is for name sake. Workshops/ seminars are more of a sales  pitches. 10% return of value for your money.
