A lot of people say “I don’t have a musical bone in my body”. Well, you’d be surprised to know that music is actually a case of “taught not caught”. That is, anybody can be musical, you just might not have realised it!
Music educator Amy Frost knows this, and has made it her mission to bring the joy of music to everyone. Amy specialises in teaching babies and children to recognise the music within them, and how to express it. The added benefit to this is that music can teach kids so much more than just how to clap in time.
Music teaches kids balance (through dance), teamwork, sharing and diversity. To hear all the tips on kids and music, check out the podcast below:
