Guitar Courses — Find out how They Saved My Summer

Guitar courses perform miracles for frazzled parents. That’s all there is to it; or how do they say it? That’s my story and I’m staying with it. Kids have been excited for summer vacation and anything that comes. As a parent, I recently worry about how i will keep them entertained. You see, I work from home and my kids have reached age where they don’t need daycare any longer. On the other hand, they still need me to get them through the day. I’m not whining because I wouldn’t are interested any other way. There are those occasional moments though when I’d like to get my work done during the day, instead of going at it after the kids are in bed. While they fight against a bed I embrace the very thought of it. This particular summer was a bit frustrating so i started looking for something that they could all do together and possibly enjoy. At minimum, they would stop their rough housing for at least an hour in a given day. What happens? I found the solution and it was an easy one to find. I purchased guitar courses for them to learn.

Their response

I’m a pretty efficient and organized parent so i had a pretty good idea on what each one of my kids would interact with this. My earliest son was a rock and roller in waiting so it would be an easy sell. My middle one was a daughter who loved to consider ucdm and reflect on everything (too much sometimes — she remembers every time I lost my cool since day one). My third one, the most youthful, was full of an abundance of energy and love for his older littermates and loved to make noise off from anything in front of him. I searched and found three different guitar courses they could take at home. Each one fit their individuality to a first tee. While many parents have their fair share of plans that they think are great, but fail miserably in their children’s eyes — my plan actually worked! These were all excited and all set. All the equipment was there in their study room, each one got to pick out their beginner guitar, and I let them have at it. They created their schedule and I made them sign an agreement to adhere to it. My smallest one just had to give me a kiss and lick on the cheek since he was too young to sign any agreement yet. Within 7 days, I had a house that was full of three different songs being practiced at one time throughout the day. I didn’t mind because their guitar time gave me work time and we were all happier for it at the end of the day.

A family u . s .

Here comes the part of my tale where I add a few bragging protection under the law. My kids decided to enter a talent show. They each were going to play guitar and learn a new song. My earliest two each learned a song that resembled their individuality. My son learned “Kryptonite” by Three Doors Down and my daughter learned “If It Enables you to Happy, by Sheryl Crowe. My little one really likes both his older brother and sibling if you recall. He made their own little medley of both songs combined. I chuckled, I cried, and I saw him have so much fun. His smile was the biggest smile I’d ever seen come from his sweet little face. In the end, they got 1st, 2nd, and finally places — how cool is that. My friends teased me that I’d bribed the family court judges, but that tournament was all kid powered. They loved it and enjoyed it so much.

If any of you parents are like I used to be — dreading summer and mumbling about it you need to evaluate what you can do. Put something awesome out there for kids to do. Something they’ll love and you’ll appreciate. You should attempt guitar lessons because they definitely saved my summer and made my kids all at the same time.
