Thinking about Quitting Music?
Look at these 5 Reasons to Stick with It.

IRVINE, CA  –  Kids in Musicianland: 5 Reasons to Stick with It, describes important reasons for young people to continue with music despite being distracted and pulled in different directions. The audience of readers is both teens and their parents, as stories are entertaining and personal.

Unlike other books for young people about music, Kids in Musicianland is a quick and easy read that need not be studied cover to cover but can be used for inspiration and tips.

Interviews with adults – radio announcers, professors, professional and amateur performers – illustrate the lifelong joys of keeping music in their lives.  These 28 personal and unique stories encourage teens and ‘tweens to not give up on music but to continue playing or singing throughout high school, college and their adult lives.

The path to becoming a professional musician is not the thrust of Kids in Musicianland, but rather the inspiration of continuing playing music “for fun” and the social experiences and other benefits of being a musician:

Reason 1:   You Meet a Lot of People
Reason 2:   You’re Part of a Team
Reason 3:   You’re Part of History
Reason 4:   You Get to Travel
Reason 5:   You Balance Your Life with Music

“Music is forgiving and kind. People aren’t born knowing how to play the cello or the violin or the flute. They have to learn how to play it … from the very beginning of learning how to simply hold it in their hands. The musician is the magic that gives an instrument life. Be that magic.”
