Reviews - What do customers think about Your Musical Child: Inspiring Kids to Play and Sing for Keeps (String Letter Publishing)?
For any parent or caregiver with a musically inclined child Apr 14, 2004
Your Musical Child: Inspiring Kids For Keeps by music educator and child development expert Jessica Baron Turner is a guidebook to nurturing musical talent in children. Practical advice concerning everything from in utero exposure; to music (while science has proven nothing about the effects of music on an unborn child, it is certainly a good thing if classical music relaxes the pregnant mother); to selecting an instrument that is right for one's child; to encouraging regular practicing without overdoing it; to selecting properly qualified teachers, and so much more, make Your Musical Child very strongly recommended reading for any parent or caregiver with a musically inclined child in their charge.
