Every day, have at least thirty minutes of Music Time. Keep changing the genre - classical one day, oldies the next. Mix in a little jazz, raggae, country, R&B, Celtic, hymns and pop. Expose them to the good music to be found across the board. Kids truly love it all. Put it on and DANCE.
Let them feel the music and try to "interpret" how it makes them move. Give them "shakers," pots and pans, or tape butter knives to the bottom of their shoes to make them 'tap.' Swirl scarves or sashes through the air along with the music. Make sure you tell them the name of each song - and make sure you DANCE WITH THEM.
Your children will soon become connoisseurs, guaranteed.
For example. Just a sampling from Little Prince's Playlist:
Mozart's March in D
"Put a Ring on It"
"I Hope They Call Me on a Mission"
The Majestic soundtrack (all suh-WEET jazz music)
"I'm a Child of God"
Rachmaninoff's Prelude Op.23 No. 5
Any kind of camp song (that's muh boy)
I seriously love my kid.
And if you'd like to see him jive, just click here. (I posted the video last year - and it remains my favorite music video of all time.)
