The Music Momma Answers your questions...
"My son has been taking violin lessons for about 11 months and now wants to play guitar too. Is this too much? Will he lose what he has done on violin if he adds guitar? I'm not sure what to do." Betty, Fairfax, VA
Many students end up exploring more than one instrument. It's great to jump on these interests while they are fresh and exciting! He will lose nothing by adding guitar - in fact, one will only enhance the musical concepts, etc. of the other. My suggestion would be to give equal time to both in terms of lesson time and practice and let him explore and develop both @ his own pace. The more music, the better! Happy Practicing!
