Mom of 12 Year Old Classical Guitarist - Introduction

Post by DenHei » Tue Oct 31, 2017 9:18 pm

Hi,

My name is Denise and my 12 year old son is a classical guitarist. He started playing at 4 years old. He has also started to play electric guitar.
He started with Suzuki method and we've been with his same guitar teacher since the beginning.

He loves modern Argentinian and Tango - is huge fan of Jason Vieux and Victor Villandangos.

Of course being 12, he also loves video games and such. So sticking to our practice can be a bit of a chore - but he does practice daily.

We are currently recording him playing Libertango (Villandangos arrangement) so that we can put it on ITunes to raise money for our music school.

I'm on this forum to get/share answers. :merci:

Hi, I'm a mom of a soon to be 12 year old daughter who started classical guitar this summer. She has been studying cello for a few years but has constantly been asking us if she can learn guitar, so we finally found her a teacher in the summer. I totally get what you are saying on practice can be a bit of chore. We've been using a combination of carrots and sticks approach to encourage her to practice. Since she has to do one hour cello practice every day, there is not much time left for guitar, so the progress has been slow.
Libertango is a great piece, it's nice he is doing this for music school fundraising!
