The teenage years present a lot of challenges for all parties as children seek to define themselves as young adults. The article below gives some ideas for helping your child keep music in their life. If they enjoyed classical before they sometimes want to switch to more popular music and this is a great way to help keep their interest.

Joining a band, accompanying friends, organising charity concerts, going to shows, festivals and concerts etc can all help them keep sight of their goals.
