New Book Helps Parents Empower Children to Foster Lifelong Passion for Playing Music

Nathan Holder’s ‘I Wish I Didn't Quit: Music Lessons’ is an uplifting and inspirational guide for parents, to help ensure their children don’t give up learning a musical instrument on a whim; a decision most later regret in adulthood. With a series of anecdotes from some of the world’s top musicians, Holder’s powerful guide will ensure every child can turn playing music into a lifelong, integral skill – one that will help them thrive in so many areas of life.

Almost every adult has a story of once playing a musical instrument, often as a child, but giving it up before their skills had fully flourished. Of the 6.7million children who learn an instrument in the UK, 50% of 8-10 year olds have lessons, compared to only 15% of 16-17 year olds (ABRSM, 2014).
While they might not admit it, most of these adults also regret that decision, and feel it’s a skill they can’t rekindle.

Of course, the answer to this dilemma is to empower children to see playing an instrument as more than just practice sessions and exams; developing a passion for playing that will turn into a lifetime of exploration.

‘I Wish I Didn't Quit: Music Lessons’ is available now.
