We are a musical family. I don’t know how it happened since I struggled through piano lessons growing up but my kids love music. My oldest plays the trumpet and apparently plays it pretty darn well. My youngest plays the guitar and has also tried the violin and the trombone (have I mentioned that the trombine is friggin’ huge).
We have been lucky. Our school has a strong music program and we have only had to schedule guitar lessons. Although now that my oldest is moving to high school, we may have to add trumpet lessons.
Finding a music teacher is a pain in the neck. Unless you know someone in the music industry, finding a qualified teacher can be a challenge. TakeLessons.com has addressed this and made it easier.
The teachers from TakeLessons.com are pre-qualified so you know they aren’t some kid in his basement picking out Stairway to Heaven. In addition, TakeLessons.com offers a money-back guarantee so if you end up with a teacher your child doesn’t like, TakeLessons.com will help you find another (having been through the experience of finding a teacher my daughter hated, trust me, the money back guarantee is a good deal).
I am going to check out TakeLessons.com if we decide to move ahead with trumpet lessons. I suggest you do the same. Now we just need to find an instrument for Oreo that doesn’t require opposable thumbs.
