Looking to introduce your child to music? Here are the answers to your questions.

By joining school band or orchestra, your child will make fast friends and learn to work as part of a team. For many children, the music classroom serves as their first introduction to playing an instrument. It is an exciting, challenging and beneficial endeavor that has been shown to increase confidence, decrease stress and improve cognitive function. For parents who come from musical backgrounds, it can be an easy transition, but what about those who grew up without music in their lives?

For many parents who are new to the world of music, when your child says, “I want to play violin,” the next steps may not be clear. And with all the other classes they’re taking, navigating through all your child’s needs can become a bit overwhelming. Often times, frustration can act as a deterrent to involving your children in music. Endless questions arise: How old does my child have to be to start? Will they need an instrument? How much will it cost? Can we rent at first? Where do I get the instrument from? How do I encourage musicality in a child with exceptional needs?

Whether your child joins music class, band or orchestra, there are some things to consider. If you’re new to the world of music or have questions, Yamaha has answers.
