We love music. I encourage my children to develop an appreciation for the art, beauty, and talent in every genre. I’ll admit, it’s a little harder to find in some, more than others, but it is possible.
In December, I had the opportunity to take my children to hear the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. The youngest, especially, were amazed to hear and see the instruments at the same time. I loved watching them, as they heard a new sound, searching to find the instrument it was coming from. It was a wonderful experience.
“Listening to symphonic music allows a child to listen to the sounds that various instruments make and then make an informed decision on which instrument they might like to try playing.” It’s true. My child could envision herself playing the flute. Actually, she mimicked playing it throughout the entire concert. I don’t know if she had even seen a flute before then.
