Getting in touch with my old school friends through Facebook reminded me of that time back in high school when I wanted to learn how to play the guitar so badly. I felt then that everyone knew how to play it except me. I was adamant to take guitar lessons, but nobody was willing to teach me. So now, I am vowing to myself that I would encourage my kids to take music lessons. I know how much it can help them academically, mentally, and socially. I want my kids to be well-rounded individuals, and I’m sure that a thorough lesson in music would help them become just that.
