What's Included in Music for Kids?
Music education is an important and worthwhile endeavor for any family, but most people don't know where or how to begin. I heartily endorse this book, which is the only one I've ever seen that succinctly and directly addresses many of the questions and concerns I frequently hear from parents who are interested in starting their children in their musical journey. The information that Deborah provides will undoubtedly guide parents in building a successful foundation in music for their family, and help curb the high drop out rate in music education. Highly recommended for anyone that wants to get their children started with a positive approach to music creating as part of their lifestyle, benefiting them holistically for their lifetime.
In her book, Deborah addresses the overwhelming questions new parents may ask, and even the questions they may never have thought to ask or research. She shows the great impact that music can have from early disciplines in children, all the way to the affects of music in managing stress later in life. I have seen first hand the challenges in getting a child to start and progress into a well-seasoned musician, as well as the huge benefits music can have in adult lives. Deborah gives parents help in understanding what it takes to help their children to be successful, and great insight and guidelines as they consider starting this journey with their children.
I can't overstate the value of music education, and not just for those who seem to have talent or special interest in music. Music touches the soul like very few other things can in this universe. Why is music so important, specifically piano? Deborah answers those questions and more in her book. As music programs are declining in numbers and support, the responsibility comes back to parents and caregivers in the home, which is actually the way it used to be. Music for Kids is a must-read for answering some of the basic questions, asked over and over on how, when and why. Deborah is an absolute pro, whom I had the chance of working with some years ago. She was one of the few pianists who could follow all my multiple key changes on the organ!
