A Marshmallow and a Song
Kenney, Susan
General Music Today, v22 n2 p27-29 2009
Music exists in time. One cannot get to the end of the song before going through the song. Is this significant for helping children wait? And can the way we present a singing game activity intensify the delay of what might be a gratifying moment at the end of the song? In this article, the author reflects on whether music can teach delayed gratification to young children.
