Hi! I feel very sad today because I 'm going to make a decision to stop my son's violin lessons. He started about 4 years ago, when he was still 4 and half. He is like his dad, sportive, but not very musical, and like to play all his time with friends. In 4 years Progress is slow and motivation is not strong. He can play, also seems to enjoy when he plays familar and easy pieces. Now we moved to Miri, Malaysia, because our expat life-style. It's a small oil town, teachers are not very inspiring. My daughter is quite different, musical, self-motivated, has a good piano teacher coming home to teach. I thought I will stop my son's violin lessons for now and let him playing some piano (he tried and find it easy and not bad). I won't expect him to become very good at it, at least expose it to him and when he's big, he can pick up things again, hopefully making faster progress.
Any advice? Waiting to hear ... Í am quite anxiuos, so I put this ob both Blog and Discussion.
