Students are motivated to play an instrument on holidays such as Christmas and New year because of the happy holiday energy and that schools require them to perform on stage. They're the happiest at performing because they look good and they are being filmed at their performance.

But once the holidays ended, they seem to be uninterested to play anymore. It's fizzled out, and they're not at their happiest to practice even at home.

When they do practice at home, they easily get tired usually and they lack motivation. They wanted to watch TV and video games instead of practicing because the music teachers are not around to monitor them. 

It's true that because of your busy schedule, you do not have time to monitor your child's music practice or even brush your kid's teeth or sometimes give them a bath. But here in this blog, learn how we ordinary parents can help them be motivated to play an instrument.
