Practically everything we do in the MT class has a developmental purpose. I say practically everything because sometimes we just do things purely for the music!

Music Education PhD, Eric Bluestine, in his book, “The Ways Children Learn Music” strongly advocates for people to understand that even though music does support all learning, music should be made for music’s sake. We can give so much to our children by providing them with a rich musical environment to grow up in, but we must also remember that humans make music simply because it’s what we do. It makes our life more full to have more music in it!
Remember this when you are going about your day, with or without your kids. And sing and dance whenever you can, for your kids and for yourself!
