Active Listening with Infants

Do you want to build a strong musical bond within your family?  There are effective ways to achieve this even if you are not yourself "musical."  Some of my most rewarding students are unmusical; as I have learned to listen objectively that term has lost its meaning.

Forging musical ties is a matter of activating listening.  This requires a daily commitment to mutual enjoyment beginning with what I think of as structured noise and moving from there through games that stimulate improvisatory as well as communicative skills.

If you or anyone you know is a candidate for this kind of familial music-grounding do get in touch.
