Musical Quick Tips

Help your children develop their musical smarts with these tips.

Does your child whistle while he works? Here are four ways to help him further develop his musical intelligence:

  • Give him plenty of opportunities to sing or play musical instruments at home.

  • Listen to music together and discuss how the music makes him feel.

  • Watch a television show together and ask him to describe the kind of mood the musical score creates. Would the show be as powerful without the musical score?

  • Encourage him to pursue hobbies such as singing in the choir and playing musical instruments.
