Musicality Quiz Results
If you have checked YES fewer than eight times, this does not necessarily mean that your child is unmusical. Most likely, he or she is too young, or too much occupied with school or other pressures,to begin developing musically.
In that case, do the Quiz again in about six months. In the mean time, try to enrich the musical environment for your child. Invest in some favorite music on CD or i-Tunes. Watch musical programs of all kinds on television, together with your child. Talk about what he or she likes or dislikes. If possible, take your child to some live events where musicians can be seen and heard; from brass band to circuses to school concerts.
If you have checked YES eight or more times, your child is musical enough to learn to play an instrument. Whether or not this musical potential is realized, depends on two things, both of them are in your control:
- choosing the right instrument, that is, the one with no physical, mental or emotional problems for your child, and the maximum of physical, mental and emotional advantages;
- starting to learn at the right time.
