Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star, What a Musical Child You Are!
Pinzino, Mary Ellen
Exceptional Parent, v39 n3 p46-47 Mar 2009
Children are born with innate musical talent. This precious gift has to be nurtured in the earliest years of life, or it will wither rather than bloom. Developmental delays and disabilities do not necessarily affect the young child's potential to learn music. Parents of young children with special needs know the power of music to facilitate growth and development. There is a difference, however, between music for learning and learning music. This article discusses how a young child's innate musical talent can be nurtured.
