    distraction

    Hi,

    I was wondering if someone could have a look for at this word - "distraction" in this context. I found two definitions for this word - 1. thing that takes your attention away from what you are doing. 2. amusement.

    I just could not figure out what "distraction" means in this context. So what is your opinion?

    Thanks for your help.


    Professor: Learning to play a musical instrument is one of the best experiences that a young child can have. Learning to play music begins with listening to others play music. A child's first experience with playing an instument should be by ear, without the distraction of printed music. Playing by ear is the natural beginning for children. The ability to play by ear will help them throughout their lives, and it also enriches the experience of music making. But children should eventually learn to read music. So, when is the right time? And what's the best way for a child to learn how to read music?
