Présentation de l'éditeur

This unique book offers a simple and practical method of selecting the right instrument for the individual child.

Starting with the physical and emotional make-up of the child and using questionnaires and charts, the authors systematically explain the pros and cons of various instruments. For instance, a child who loves company might not enjoy playing the piano as it is predominantly a solo instrument. It appeals more to quiet introverts and yet many a child has been forced to learn only to give up as soon as they are allowed.

As well as examining each individual instrument, the authors give advice on how some of the pitfalls can be avoided and provide information on buying and practising.

Based on years of research by the authors, whose experience is unsurpassed, this is a comprehensive and inspirational book that will help unlock every child's potential.

This book should be in the hands of every parent of a child wishing to learn an instrument, and every teacher of music. It discusses the psychological and temperamental satisfactions of playing different instruments, allowing adults to match children to instruments.

THis ;is an important book if you want your child to succeed in music, and not waste years of your money on lessons and instruments, and don't want a child to think he ;is unmusical. Put a kid on the right instrument and it will do well she says .True= as most kids start the piano and fail ..
It is a fourth edition, so it must be good and valuable -I would recommend any parents who want their kids to play an instrument to get it!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 presents a good method for selecting an instrument 24 avril 2007
Par Lorel Shea - Publié sur
This is an interesting guide. I never gave much thought to personality factoring into instrument choice, and the authors make this a primary consideration. The book has a checklist to gauge your child's personality, although I found it tricky to pick between traits such as academic or creative, serious or fun seeking. My children behave differently according to circumstances, and this type of black and white labeling was a challenge for me. Nevertheless, I found it extremely helpful to follow the exercises and think about personality, physical aspects, and academic interests. According to the book, the French Horn is better for thin to medium lipped children, while the trombone has a larger mouthpiece and is easier for bigger lips to blow. The piano may not be good for extremely social kids, as it takes many years before they can play in an ensemble. These are good things to factor in when making this important decision.

The authors believe that a child should be reading fluently and doing basic math operations before taking up an instrument. Obviously, this means that they do not advocate having a preschool child take up an instrument. Their idea is that kids should be exposed to music early on, but not attempt serious study until age 7, 8, or later. There is discourse relating to how intense the requirement for parental involvement in Suzuki style lessons, though the book does not actaully come out as overtly Suzuki bashing.

The authors also state that a child may give up after a short time or a few years if the instrument is not the correct match. Their message is that the proper instrument will provide a lifelong hobby or career.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Scary accurate for me! 10 août 2007
Par Amy Jenkins - Publié sur
I started piano at the age of almost 5, and had 11 subsequent years of lessons. Alongside, I played 2 yrs of violin, followed by 3 yrs of flute, and found my love between the summer of 8th and 9th grade on the oboe. I still occasionally play piano, flute and oboe today, and my 9 year old daughter is now playing my violin. What I found interesting about this book is it really seemed so accurate, given my family history! My brother, who didn't start piano until 9 yrs of age, is a far more accomplished pianist than I am, even though I took more years of lessons. My daughter has accomplished in 2 years what it took me over 4 years to do because she started when she was older. This book speaks strongly about delaying the start of piano lessons, and based on my experiences, I would have to concur.

The scary chapter for me was about the oboe. They STRONGLY discourage a child from playing it, and say it's a self selecting instrument at about the age of 14. EXACTLY ACCURATE for me. They say stubborn, tight lipped children do best; socially, oboists largely keep to themselves. Right on the money, in my experience. Now that I'm helping my children select their instruments, it's been very helpful to read th is book again and again. I highly recommend this one!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Very useful! 11 juillet 2008
Par tanja_b - Publié sur
An excellent book with many usable advices how to choose appropriate instrument. Detailed descriptions of nearly all "classical" instruments (except for accordion), with guidelines regarding child's physical, mental and social characteristics. I consider this book very useful for parents, as well as for adult (amateur) musicians who want to better know characteristics of different instruments.
