Learning music is like learning a second language, which means it’s important to be listening as much as possible.

It can be very challenging for your child to learn a new piece if they don’t know what it sounds like. Learning music is similar to how children hear language as an infant before they speak their first word.

Here are some fun ways to incorporate more music listening into your day!

  • Get the recordings on your phone or tablet
  • Listen while doing homework or during homework breaks
  • Create playlists and add famous pieces, fun music for the whole family, or supplemental music from higher level Suzuki books

If you or your child are humming or singing songs throughout your day, then you’re doing great!
