Make sure your child knows you care about their progress

See what your child does
Your child enjoys the attention of a parent. Find out what instrument your child is interested in most. Your child will do more effort to study the instrument that is desired.
Follow what your child does. Be there for your child and see the progress with your own eyes. All children enjoy the attention of their parents. They want their parents to follow their activities.
Support your child
If your child learns to play an instrument and takes music lessons, then it is important that you are supportive. There are different ways to do that.
Every child can have a bad day. A child that learns to play an instrument is no exception to that. Music lessons are not easy, and in time it only gets harder. Some children get the hang of it pretty fast, but even they can have days where things do not seem to work out that well.
Frustration is bound to manifest itself from time to time no matter what skill is learned. Supportiveness is what your child needs when frustration is manifesting. Enlighten your child that everybody deals with having a hard day every now and then. Teach your child that patience is necessary to learn a skill.
Be there when your child has to perform. Recitals are always a part of learning music. An audience will witness the progress of your child. Other students are bound to be there too. Your child will appreciate your support.
Be part of their learning
If you have always wanted to learn how to play a musical instrument but you never got to it for whatever reason, then it is a good idea to join your child and take the same lessons. Your child will cherish the moments it could spend learning together with you.
