Wow! I did that same thing during piano. I forced myself to mess up, simply cause I hated it. I didn't want to do it! Of course my piano teacher talked to my mom and stuff, but I still don't like it. And I'm still doing it!

Yeah, the only reason my mom's making me play is because, "She always wanted to when she was younger and I'll be thanking her in like 10 years." How about never?! Thank her for making me do something I really hate? Fine.

And she says, "No one else in your grade can play." Really? I can name 10.

I also showed her this thing in Woman magazine or something I can't remember, and it said in big bold words, "Kids should be able to chose the instruments that they want to play." And she said, "No! That's not true!"

IN WHAT WAY IS THAT NOT TRUE?!

That's why I've been secretly teaching myself how to play guitar when she's not home.

-bamcr-

That's how my mom and grandpa were with bagpipes, though mom eventually let me quit. I just stopped playing them. Grandpa told me to play and I told him to back off. I told both of them I didn't want to do it and I refused to. Mom attempted to punish me but I didn't listen heh. It's not her life. Sure, I'm her kid, but she can't control everything I do. I'm not her little puppet and I never will be.

No kid should ever have to fulfill their parents lives just because they couldn't do it themselves.

i've played instruments before and i didn't like it but now i'm trying the guitar and i'm sure i'll like it...... it sounds fun so yeh.....
all i can say is have a bit more of a go at it(don't quit yet)and try your hardest to get the notes and all that jazz.... at one point i had the nickname Lisa Simpson lol i play the sax and didn't like that so then flute now guitar..... so yeh i just give up a lot but tell your parents how you feel and maybe try out other instruments good luck and hope this helped even the tinyiest bit

Wow thats pretty harsh. They CANT MAKE YOU DO STUFF THEY DIDNT DO IN THEIR CHILDHOOD! My mum wanted me to be a young lady (Not swearing, makeup {UGH!} ) But she never forced me to do it. So I got the easy life. But your parents should be ASHAMED TO FORCE YOU INTO SOMETHING THEY COULDNT DO! the only thing they dont let me do it swearing (Except for cr*p, thats fine). Tell them this:

"Why are you MAKING me do stuff I dont wanna do? You should be ashamed of yourself for making your own child do something you couldnt do in your childhood! SO WHY MAKE ME DO IT?" and then just run into your room and fake cry. then she will think about it and your problem MIGHT be solved! :huh:

Exactly. The parents had their chance (they still kinda do have a chance O_o) and they aren't taking it

Speaking of parents still having a chance. After I quit my mom tried learning how to play the pipes, but her fingers always locked up so she couldn't do it. It was also harder for her to learn.

I think the main reason parents get their kids to learn when they're well.. kids, is because it's easier to learn things when you're younger. Your body is also easier to train in the ways it needs to for playing instruments, or really doing anything involving body movement.

Even still, that doesn't make it right.

I play clarinet in band and it's really starting to get on my nerves.
Going to lessons every week, annoying reharsels in the afternoons, practicing day by day, UGH!
I can't take it any more!! >.<
I asked my mom, "Can I quit? PLEASE?!" and she said I have to play until I GRADUATE! :( 6 MORE YEARS?!
Today at rehearsal my cork on one of my instrument pieces came off, and when the teacher was talking plop! It fell apart! Now I can't play until the teacher fixes it! :D
Just sitting there listening to all the noise made me think that I'm a geek! I just don't feel comfortable in band.. ;)
If I wasn't so stupid in 4th grade to try out for clarinet I wouldn't have had to go through this! ><
Someone, please, give me advice, I've tried everything with my parents and the answer is no! :lol:
I try my best at playing and I get good grades and all but I just all together hate it..
No offence to anyone in band, of course.

You may feel nerdy playing clarinet but i have to play the TUBA
i dont belong in band >:)

maybe u should show ur mom this topic and see how many kids disagree with her decision then maybe shell reconsider
(although i havent read everyones answers yet)
