Music practice arguments in families are seemingly so ubiquitous that it's become a trope used in sitcoms. But it doesn't have to be this way. Your child can have a wonderful experience with music and you can enjoy watching their progress without it becoming a battlefield.
In Practice Pie, I'll teach you how to support your child in their musical journey. I can't promise it will be as easy as pie (but then, is pie really easy?) but I can promise to make it quick and practical, with a little humour thrown in for good measure.
You signed your child up for lessons because you wanted them to enjoy and appreciate music. You deserve a taste of that fun, too. Let's get baking so we can take a bite of some delicious music practice pie!
"Practice Pie is a charming and accessible book that teachers, parents and students will gain immense benefit from reading! It is full of wisdom and practical advice. I plan to make it required reading for all my piano families!"
