Music has a natural ability to capture the attention and focus of babies and young children. Predictable, repetitive patterns naturally implant themselves in the memory, making short, catchy songs an effective tool for teaching early childhood concepts and serve as the perfect memory device for recalling/applying specific information.
To create and use song structures, harmonies and chord progressions/resolutions that appeal to both children and adults, so my music can be enjoyed by both while children learn important developmental concepts within the songs.
I believe music is more than a “universal language”. It’s a communication tool that works far deeper than words. Music can soothe, reassure, comfort, validate, stimulate, relax and elicit joy in people of all ages, cultures, abilities and intellectual capacity. Music connects us at the roots of our instincts, making it a necessary tool in teaching and nurturing developing minds.
