Review from Aftonbladet October 1, A body — sloppy white underpants halfway down a white ass, arms, legs, hairy abdomen and an unbearable itch that makes this adult male body twist around itself in a desperate attempt to crawl out of its own skin. Anxiety in its most naked form, the fleshy, corporeal sort of despair. And just then — when Job has lost everything, his children, his fortune, his mind, when it hurts the most — three rambunctious and jostling friends enter with gifts and joyous acclamations and those collisions, brutal clashes between farce and horror, tells of a society where everything is entertainment. It gets worse and worse and worse and just as a small glimmer of light can be perceived in the form of a reconciliation between Job and God the men of secular power arrive and impale Job on a stake through the anus so that he ever so slowly dies.
The student is too busy with other activities. The student hates practicing or the parents grow weary of begging the child to practice. Here are reasons students quit, and ways to combat them: The sad truth is that many non-music teachers and administrators do not find music equally as important as math or English language-arts — but parents must.
Many kids would jump at that opportunity!
Music is a core subject…period. The more parents treat it as such, the less students Musical notation and holidays homework quit. Without the proper tools and practice habits to get better at anything, students will become frustrated and want to quit.
Teachers must teach students why, how, where, and when to practice, and parents must obtain minimal knowledge about how students learn music in order to properly support them at home.
Sure, there are some kids who pick up an instrument and sound decent immediately, but they will hit a wall later and have to work hard to overcome it.
Playing a musical instrument is a craft that, if practiced correctly, is something that all children can find success in. As long as students know how to practice and that it needs to be done regularly, they will get better.
Students discontinue playing over the summer.
Statistics show that students who do not read over the summer find themselves extremely behind once school starts — the same goes for playing an instrument!
A year of musical instruction can quickly go down the tubes over the summer vacation if students do not find small ways to play once in a while. Picking up an instrument for the first time after a long layoff can be so frustrating that a student will not want to continue into the next school year.
The instrument is in disrepair. Sometimes the malfunction is so subtle that the student thinks they are doing something wrong, and frustration mounts. Students, parents and teachers need to be aware of the basics of instrument maintenance and be on top of repairs when needed.
The best way to motivate students musically is through performance. Weeks or even months on end of practicing without performing for an audience gets old very quick, and students will definitely quit. Teachers should schedule performances every six weeks or so in order for students to stay engaged and practicing.
Parents can help by creating small performance opportunities at home — a Friday night dinner concert or a planned performance for visiting family members are great ideas.
Other activities are pulling at the child. Parents need to understand that the enduring social and psychological benefits of music are as enormous as those of sports — in the same and different ways.
Also, if music is a class in school, then school obligations should be priorities. Budget time accordingly and children will have 10 minutes a day to practice an instrument, for sure.
Much like any worthwhile venture, practicing a musical instrument has its ups and downs. Kids need to be reminded to practice, of course — but they should not be constantly pushed, and they should not be completely left alone, either.
Either way, all children are capable of thriving with a musical education, and students will indeed thank their parents now and later for not letting them quit.[page ii] PREFATORY NOTE.

Musical Notation and Holidays Homework. A few suggestions to be kept in mind. Spend quality time with your children. Take them to see places of interest in Delhi. Every year almost % of public school students begin an instrument through their school’s music program (if a program exists).
