Monday, January 31, 20226 - 7:30PM

Zoom Video Conference


Whether a child plays an instrument or is a vocalist, their parent is a significant guide for their child’s musical growth. Despite their best efforts, many well-meaning parents of talented youth musicians make mistakes that undermine their child's musical success. This presentation will identify and assist in addressing the many unique challenges faced by parents of musically talented children.

This workshop will also highlight the joys and challenges associated with parenting musical children, identifying signs of musical giftedness, balancing musical development and social development and common parental pitfalls to avoid. Those present will have an opportunity to have their questions addressed by music professionals and parents of gifted children during the question-and-answer period.
