Just a couple of questions I think are important to ask.......

Does SHE love playing? I know this class is a bit ahead of her, but could she get private lessons for a few weeks to catch up? If she really loves playing, it would be worth the investment. Lessons in most areas run $20 or less a week. My son plays french horn and piano and my daughters play piano and violin. So I know the investment thing (dang those horns costing so much). I loved the idea of my kids playing piano and one other thing, but realized after the first 15 months that my middle daughter didn't LOVE the violin as much as I wished she would have. She opted out and we sold her instrument and paid off our committment. I guess for me the option to quit isn't an option. They can choose a different instrument, etc. but can't outright quit music.

Will your music store move your credit to another instrument or take the payments up to this point as a rental fee? Some will. I'd ask. My son played cello for all of 3 months before realizing he didn't want to and our music store gave us a credit toward the french horn.

Good luck!

Before letting her quit, I would suggest that she take advantage of the extra help for a set period of time (perhaps half the amount of time that the instuctor suggests would be helpful).
