||Author Robert A. Cutietta, offers a complete, practical guide to this common parenting issue. The premise of the book is that practicing is hard work and the pay-off is very long term. The book suggests using rewards related to music (concert tickets, better instruments, etc.) to get kids to practice. The basic point is that even people who become professional musicians relied on parent involvement to get them to practice when they were young.
