One of my most difficult jobs is that of Suzuki parent.
This may surprise someone of you, but this job is doesn’t have great pay.
I spend hours and hours practicing with my kids and taking them to lesson and group class and concerts.
And do I get a cent? No, I do not.
In fact, I pay quite a bit of money to be a Suzuki parent. (Especially now that I’m paying for lessons for TWO kids.)
Because I don’t get a regular paycheck, or accolades and applause for the work I do as a Suzuki parent, it is important to me to celebrate those special moments where things go really really well.
I call them Suzuki Parent Paydays.
I had one today.
My son really engaged in the lesson. He made a serious mental effort during his lesson, and played better than he has in any previous lesson.
I was so happy.
So whether your child has just played in a recital…
Or gotten through twinkle for the first time…
Or stayed on their foot chart for the whole group lesson…
Or had a beautiful bow hand…
Or practiced without bursting into tears…
It’s a Suzuki Parent Payday!!!
