Children Need Music
Gruhn, Wilfried
International Journal of Music Education, v23 n2 p99-101 2005
Neurobiological and anthropological reasons call for high-priority attention to the human need for music as a rhythmically organized sound experience and an expressive tool for communication. Every human being is born with a certain level of musical potential. The most powerful neural networks and behavioural attitudes are developed during childhood. Therefore, music education plays an essential role in developing and consolidating this given potential.
