When your family is on the way to a wedding, graduation, funeral, sports rally, etc. – make a habit of anticipating with your child what the music will be like. Help them begin to see the role music has in important life moments.
“We’re off to a sports event. What will the music be like? What do they want people to feel?”
Can you think of some songs that definitely won’t fit? Like “Lullaby and good night?” Have fun – get a little outrageous.
Let’s imagine if there was no music at all. How would that change things?
Share a wink when you notice a song you predicted would be played.
