As some of you know, I took up the bass a little while ago. This was in major part due to my longtime desire to play. In small part, it was due to seeing my 11 year old daughter begin guitar lessons, and actually feeling a pang of jealousy! :devil: Anyway, my daughter began her lessons months ago, and I have yet to see any significant improvement in her playing. I don't THINK it's attributable to the teacher. The guy is great. I attribute it to a serious lack of effort on her part. She rarely practices, and when she does it's more of a random plucking session, playing bits & pieces of tunes she's sort of learned. I don't think she's played an entire song from start to finish even once. She makes no attempt to play along to songs the teacher gives her, saying that the music confuses her, she loses her place, and can't get back on track. I say she's not even trying. At this point I'm disinclined to keep sending her to lessons when she's not putting any effort into it. Am I being unrealistic or do I need to give her more time/benefit of the doubt? Do I need to maybe switch teachers to see if there's someone who can give her more- je ne sais quoi? Thanks!
