Anwar Robinson, a music teacher and finalist on season 4 of American Idol, says, “It’s vital that children get music education!”

Kourtney Kardashian wants moms to know that music education is extremely important to a child’s development. “I took Mason [her 11-month-old son with boyfriend Scott Disick, 27] to music class a few days ago,” Kourtney, 31, wrote on her blog. “He’s really enjoying it and it’s so great to be around other moms and children. I would really recommend music class to new moms!”

Baby Mason Disick was rushed to the hospital because of a peanut allergy!

“It’s vital that children get music education,” Anwar Robinson, a finalist in season 4 of American Idol and music teacher, tells “It is vital that children get to have an instrument, vocal training or music appreciation because it helps you in every area of life. It helps you in the core curriculum subjects, language arts, mathematics, social studies and science. It helps you extract details from all of those.”

Scott Disick doesn’t want his son Mason to be on TV!

Anwar says that the earlier you teach kids music, the better. “I didn’t talk for five years, from 0-5,” he explains. “So me playing the piano…  my mom got me a keyboard and I would tinkle on it, and I realized I had an ear to hear the song and reproduce it.”

But parents have to be careful not to become stage parents. “We have some parents that live vicariously through children. And being a teacher I see it often, more times then I’d like to,” Anwar says. “A child has to develop the affective domain, which means they have to develop their own love and their own value system for the art in order to grow upon it. If they see it as as an outlet, as something enjoyable, they’ll keep to it.”

Baby Mason Disick is walking!

Anwar tells these stage parents to take a step back. “To those parents, because it’s really the parents’ responsibility, just breathe,” he advises. “Make sure your child is enjoying it. Express the importance of practice and doing well, but [remember that] life is not contingent on just that one thing.”
