The modern hectic lives of parents leave little choice as it is considered as an easy way out. But is it really the ideal way to spend extra time?

It is very much there if you are willing to allow your kids develop into fine human beings.
Why not provide an outlet to your kids for their creative juices to flow. Most kids have an interest in music. The only thing for parents to do is to give direction to their interests so that they can focus on learning the fine art. Mind you children learn so many things apart from music when they spend time in the pursuit and its various aspects such as music recording and so on.
Music teaches kids to be persistent and disciplined. It also teaches them to try towards perfection and be a good team player. They also learn how to concentrate and keep on trying till the right chord is played. All this helps them not only in their studies but also in facing the challenges of life. Thus music at home and home recording is the first lesson you can impart to your children.
How to generate and maintain the interest of kids in various genres of music and instruments? It is a tough question as kids are often too occupied with a lot many things and easily lose interest in a particular instrument or form of music in no time. So you have the prospect of seeing that your effort and money spent in buying an expensive instrument or making a small home recording studio is wasted and lying in some corner of your place. To avoid this scenario, it is important that at least initially you bring home something that can hold the child’s interest for quite some time. This would include instruments such as electric guitar, bass or drums. Encourage them to download music that is free over the internet.
Another thing to remember is that no one becomes an expert overnight. Have patience with your child. No point in fussing over his skills too much. Your little words of appreciation will mean the world to them. You will do their self esteem a world of good this way.
