The Sound of Your Home
The surest way for children to appreciate music is to be surrounded by it. Whatever your musical preferences, repeated exposure to (and celebration of) the music you like builds their familiarity and appreciation.
Having a broad musical palette is wonderful. And building a deep comfort with a couple of favorite genres is great as well. It provides a rich musical home base – the place where they learn about structure and melody and rhythms and all the emotional connections they bring.
