We expect all children to learn to read. It’s just a given. So why is it then that we don’t expect all children to be musical?
This is a statement that drew me to Dr. Lisa Koops and her research and work in the field of early childhood musical development. Join us on today’s podcast as we chat with Dr. Koops and discover:
- Why family music making should be a part of everyone’s daily routines
- How even the most “non-musical” parents can still model musicality for their children (and why they should!)
- Why the car provides the perfect place for making musical connections with your children
- What are “music play zones” and why every family needs one
- Why we should expect all children to be musical, and what we should be doing to follow through with this expectation.
- And much, much more!
Early Childhood Music Experiences Count
In our busy world there are few moments when you are completely and totally alone with your child.. except for when you are driving. And, as as you’ll hear from Dr. Koops’ research, this alone time in the car is the perfect place for some family music making. Music making is a wonderful thing for piano teachers to be promoting, and so this is a podcast that I’m sure you’ll want to share with your piano families!
