As Confucius said, knowledgeable people were worse off than curious people, and curious people were worse off than passionate people. Before we cultivating confidence in our students, we need to first stimulate their interest. That's why Sing and You is big about putting children's interest first. Interest and confidence are definitely complementary.
While some people's interest in singing is rooted in their family, for most people their interest can be cultivated through professional and inspiring coaching. A professional coach should be able to not just maintain but inspire students' interest in music as they implement pedagogy tailor-made to student’s developmental and psychological needs.
