  1. Hi Pansy, it was exciting to read this and it’s so true! I love to play the piano and my wife loves to listen. During each of her pregnancies she would sit and listen to me play. Both of my sons now love music and are gifted.

    I have to believe that them hearing music from the time they came into existence played a role in that. It’s so natural for kids to sing and make music, too bad many of us lose that as we become adults. Let the music play!!!

    1. Hi Scott, thanks for your visit and also for your comment. I imagine your home being a happy and wonderful place to be. Wow! there is music there. Children who are brought up in a home where there is music are usually patient, loving and kind. Of course, the genre do play its part to the response. From your comment I can see that you have been treating your family with good stuff. Your children will benefit greatly from the exposure. They will know how to relax when the going gets tough. I love music and all my four children have been exposed to music early.

      Do keep up the good work, others will catch on. Let the music roll, Let it play. It is the (a) food of love!!!

      Please come again.

  2. Thanks so much for this article – I sing to my sons all the time. They each have their own special lullaby that I sing to them at bedtime and now that we’re approaching Christmas, they want to hear songs about Santa. We also bought them a little set of musical instruments – it has a tambourine, drum, bells, etc. and they love to make music! I’ve recently noticed my older son is singing more and more, and I love that he has the confidence to do so! 🙂

    1. Hi Teresa, thanks for your visit and participation. I must commend you for seeing to an important aspect of your children’s development. Music makes good companion. So many persons including children find it quicker to apply to, for consolation when they are feeling down. What better thing to run to especially when others may not understand?

      By the way, have you recognized any of your children doing anything sounding as their own composition as yet? Please share with me. Child composers do come quickly. I can also imagine what goes on in your house when you have more than one band playing at the same time. Thanks again for visiting. Looking forward for your visit again.
