Subscribe! Don’t forget the alarm! Question from first grade son’s mom. He wants to learn music such as playing the piano or the cello. But he has English lessons 5 times a week. He doesn’t have time. How should we teach him music when he doesn’t even have time to read books? I’ve taken a look at his story. I can see that he didn’t go to English elementary school. That’s probably why his parents have sent him to English lessons. Let’s say one lesson is 90 minutes long. Clearly he doesn’t have time to learn music. I object to sending children to English lessons 5 times a week. We have much more things to learn than just English. Also it is best children learn music or PE until third grade. It doesn’t mean you have to make them musicians. It is about giving them chances to experience music. They would better understand music with prior experience. Don’t be too anxious about teaching English. Three lessons a week is enough. I hope your question is answered.
