Welcome to our fall Music Together session.
I will be sending out a weekly email with both administrative details and tips about how to make the most of your Music Together experience—and I’d be delighted to hear back from you about how your classes are going.
My most important tip is that your role is essential regardless of your musical ability! Young children learn life skills from their parents and caregivers, the persons with whom they have a strong emotional bond. Both consciously and unconsciously, we create a loving and stimulating environment so that our children can learn how to talk, move, think creatively, live with others—and sing. Yet, we rarely credit ourselves for this amazing achievement.
Children can learn skills from any capable teacher, but they can only learn the disposition or the desire to love music making from you. So, participate fully in class, at whatever level you are comfortable, play the recordings often at home and in your car, observe your child’s response to the music, ask me and/or your teacher questions—and have fun.
