A Bespoke Opinion – How to keep the Kids interested after the 1 year itch.

We at Bespoke Music Tuition understand children, especially of a certain age, don’t always love the idea of taking music lessons when they get home from school. Like all of us, they can get tired and overwhelmed with the work on their plate.

Now, if unaddressed, this mild annoyance from the pupil can grow into a full-blown resentment of lessons and a general fall out of love with musical instruments. We often find that this discontentment happens around the one year mark, when the novelty of the lessons has worn off and the work becomes harder in preparations for exams.

At Bespoke we encourage parents and pupils to talk to us and their tutor about this issue, we often find parents feel embarrassed to talk to us as they feel they may be offending us. However, it is quite the opposite, we at Bespoke strongly believe that the secret to effective learning is passion, and it is vitally important to us that our students are not only learning, but thoroughly enjoying their lessons.

There are several things we can do to try and keep the lessons interesting and fun, the solution can be as simple as ensuring time for some fun music, learning their favourite pop song along with exam pieces.

We can try new syllabuses or adjust when the lessons take place to ensure all the work doesn’t become too overwhelming.

At the more extreme end, we can see if a new tutor may help, this is something that very rarely happens as all our tutors are brilliant at adapting to fit a changing environment, but some students do benefit from a fresh face to renew their interest.

Whatever is decided, it will be a decision made equally with parent and student, we at Bespoke specialise is adapting your tuition to best suit your individual needs, and we are aware that needs can change during your time with us.

If you ever have any worries about anything, please call us, we are always here to ensure you are happy and your child is receiving the best tuition possible.
