My daughter has only started to play the flute. I
did have a long talk with her band teacher yesterday.
He says that he had no idea she was dyslexic or even
how that would affect her reading music, BUT, he
feels she has talent and that she has improved this
past week. She started writing the name of the
note(G,F,etc) under the notes, which seems to help. This leads
me to think her dyslexia IS a factor, but she is
enthusiastic about playing and I think she can compensate for
any reading problems. <br><br>She's having a really
hard time right now in school. She has detention today
for "forgetting" to do homework and very sloppy work.
She is tearful and frustrated and tends to give up
easily. Boy, it's hard to know what to do with her, I
feel a bit tearful and frustrated myself. Thanks for
the advice. I am still encouraging her to try!
