"An all-inclusive guide to help answer parents' questions about teachers, lessons and instruments...an excellent resource for parents." -"American Music Teacher"
"The authors counsel parents how to guide children through their study of music.... I like this perspective: ""Every life should include music. Even if we cannot all be performers, composers, or teachers, we can all become members of an educated, appreciative audience."" -"Parenting by the Book"
Children are musical by nature, whether clapping their hands or singing a joyful song, but many parents don't know when or how to begin their child's formal musical education. Whether you wish to encourage your young child's musical growth or would like to plan for a musical career, "The Harmonious Child" provides insight and guidance into the musical education of children--from toddlers to teenagers. Beth Luey and Stella Saperstein walk you through the basics of finding the right instrument and instructor for your child, the ins and outs of music lessons, and successful ways to manage practice time. Beth and Stella offer practical, friendly, and knowledgeable advice about band, orchestra, and recitals-even the possibility of a musical career for the very talented. With a thorough list of resources and a glossary, this guide will help you encourage you and your child to make music a part of your lives. And, as a bonus, remember that music does make children smarter--but only if they play it themselves!
