Today in class a Mommie shared a fun story about her quiet son. He is the careful observing-learner in class, always watching everything closely; his mom shared that as soon as they get home, he runs his own music classes just like his teacher!
I have heard many cool variations of this story through the years and I am always fascinated and excited! Children learn in so many different ways. The moving-learner will be very active in class, while other children absorb the information by watching or listening and will play with the music later. I am glad we honor different styles of learning.
Music learning is cumulative and flourishes as a child returns, reviews - and finally masters.
