My daughter has been playing the piano for quite some time. She is not making any progress above the easy piano music. She gets easily confused as the sheet music or lessons become busier with 8th notes, half notes, then going back and forth between different octaves. I think if she worked at it more than getting so anxiety-stricken she could work through it. This morning over breakfast, I asked her what her thoughts were about taking lessons again next year and she woefully shook her head no. I think she was more afraid of disappointing me than anyone. But I told her to do her best and finish out the year and then if she wanted to stop that was fine with me. Does anyone have any suggestions, thoughts or experience in this area?
