This book of parent-to-parent advice aims to encourage, support, and bolster the morale of one of music's most important back-up sections: music parents. Within these pages, more than 150 veteran music parents contribute their experiences, reflections, warnings, and helpful suggestions for how to walk the music-parenting tightrope: how to be supportive but not overbearing, and how to encourage excellence without becoming bogged down in frustration. Among those offering advice are the parents of several top musicians, including the mother of violinist Joshua Bell, the father of trumpeter Wynton Marsalis, the parents of cellist Alisa Weilerstein, and those of violinist Anne Akiko Meyers. The book also features advice from music educators and more than forty professional musicians, including Paula Robison, Sarah Chang, Anthony McGill, Jennifer Koh, Jonathan Biss, Toyin Spellman-Diaz, Marin Alsop, Christian McBride, Miguel Zenón, Stephanie Blythe, Lawrence Brownlee, Kelli O'Hara, as well as Joshua Bell, Alisa Weilerstein, Wynton Marsalis, Anne Akiko Meyers, and others. The topics they discuss span a wide range of issues faced by the parents of both instrumentalists and singers, from how to get started and encourage effective practice habits, to how to weather the rough spots, cope with the cost of music training, deal with college and career concerns, and help young musicians discover the role that music can play in their lives. The parents who speak here reach a unanimous and overwhelming conclusion that music parenting is well worth the effort, and the experiences that come with it - from sitting in on early lessons and watching their kids perform onstage to tagging along at music conventions as their youngsters try out instruments at exhibitors' booths - enrich family life with a unique joy in music.

How much life insurance is enough to protect my children? What is a "good" yield on a nest-egg investment? Should I give my child an allowance? How do I choose a camp? What about music lessons? What kind of college will suit my child's educational needs and my financial resources? Questions asked by parents everywhere. Now, in one up-to-date resource, the answers to these fiscal issues are available in plain, unambiguous language. Covering topics from prebirth nest eggs to the tax implications of gifts to adult children, Hughes and Klein outline financial strategies to prepare for the expected and unexpected costs of raising a child. This is a valuable guide for parents at every stage of parenthood, whether just contemplating a family or sweating bullets over the cost of higher education. No other book presents the big picture as this one does: It can help make children not only affordable, but wonderfully worth it.
