I think children should be required to keep learning a musical instrument course even though they do not want to keep learning. Children are too young and too emotional to make decisions by themselves. They have too many excuses to refuse to keep learning: maybe the current course is difficult and they cannot gain senses of achievement; maybe they just want to play outside instead of taking the course; or they are merely lazy… So it is the duty of parents and teachers to encourage children, to help them analyze the causes and to advise them to continue learning, not just let them do whatever they want to do.
I strongly believe that individuals, no matter adults or children, have the right to make decisions by themselves. So even children are vey young, they can choose to keep taking a musical instrument course or not, and should not be forced to do things consistent with their parents’ wishes. On the other hand, if children who do not want to keep learning such courses are forced to take them, they will not be happy and learn little. It is just a waste of time, energy and money.
