Competition – I Wish I Didn’t Quit: Music Lessons

**This post may contain affiliate links.

Today I’m offering one of you the chance to win a copy of I Wish I Didn’t Quit: Music Lessons by Nathan Holder. The book centres around the fact that many young people start playing an instrument, become bored, quit and later regret that decision. Parents have a large part to play when it comes to the environment their children are in and their schedules, as well as understanding important aspects such as talent and expectations. It’s targeted at parents who have children in between the ages of 5-16.

I Wish I Didn't Quit: Music Lessons


Book Description

Your child starts playing an instrument. Then they grow frustrated, impatient and bored. Then they quit and years later wish they didn’t.

Why does this happen to so many people? Bad teaching? Boring music? Is playing the clarinet not cool enough? How can you stop this from happening? What can you do to help?

I Wish I Didn’t Quit: Music Lessons gives you the tools and ideas to help your child succeed along their musical journey.

      When my son started learning piano, we rented a piano, that way we did not have a large expense on an instrument when we weren’t sure he would stick with the lessons (he did by the way and is now a professional musician and music producer).
