The Importance of Daily Listening
Young violin students, learning with the Mother Tongue Approach, should listen to their music of the every day. In this way, young children learn the musical language naturally and unconsciously and will develop an awareness for beautiful tone, clear rhythm, proper intonation, and musical expressiveness from the very beginning. This ear training is the most important prerequisite for learning new pieces in the first years of lessons. Always remember the principle of learning to speak. Without being literally bathed in speech, learning the mother tongue would be impossible. And just as with language, your child need not always listen attentively. The music can be played in the background as he plays, baths, eats, or rides in the car.
