................... Posted July 16, 2012 Share Posted July 16, 2012 I have a child who was quite good at piano, and enjoyed it well enough. She does not / did not like to perform and dislikes being a ham or on stage in general. We were having problems with our teacher (she was/is overbooked and very scattered, which can be frustrating for the student but overall it wasn't horrible.). I took her out when we moved (approx 25 minutes away.) Now I've heard that this teacher (who is also a friend of mine) is scaling back so I think she will be a better teacher. I'm Interested in trying again but my dd really Isnt interested. I've looked for other teachers but they are all easily twice as much $. My dd is 8 and has shown nO talent in anything else. She didn't like dance and wasn't good at it, she likes gymnastics but there's not much oomph to succeed. I'll be surprised if she can do a cartwheel after a year. She is very intelligent and is doing great with homeschooling, including picking up Spanish very fast. She is a type C personality and I fear that her lack of interest in piano has more to dO with her aversion to hard work than anything else. Would you try to get her back into it (knowing its an hour and a half commitment plus $65 per month plus gas $$ and my time commitment making sure she practices) or would it be better to just let the whole thing go?
