If you’re a musician, chances are that you wouldn’t mind if your child grew up to be one too. Of course, as a mature adult, you know that you can’t force your child to do anything, and you also don’t want them to pursue something they don’t love to do. All you can do is hope that they fall in love with music, and if you’d like to “encourage” them towards that road, here are some ways to do it.
Play Music To The Womb
One thing you can do is to play music to your wife’s belly while she’s still pregnant with your child. We don’t mean loud music—just soft, mellow tunes that may enhance their womb experience and potentially plant musical seeds within their mind, body, and soul.
Sing To Them Always
As your child progresses from infant to toddler, you should always be singing to them. This not only presents them with a positive, optimistic worldview, but also engages their creative muscles and may inspire them to start singing as well.
Enjoy It Yourself
Finally, the best thing you can do to influence your child musically is to not “try” to do anything. Just enjoy music on your own, and if you truly do love it, that will be all the influence they need. You don’t realize how much your child looks up to you, so don’t try so hard and just be proud of who they are no matter what.
