Cultivating a love of music in our children when they are young is important for so many reasons. It not only lays the foundation for learning how to play instruments, but also can create a soothing environment and influence brain activity. When my son was younger, we were lucky to find Beth Frook, the director of Little Hands. Beth has such a wonderful way with children–and their parents!–that makes even the most timid want to jump up and sing. While families are running around in so many different directions these days, good old playtime gets lost in the shuffle. It’s only appropriate that “Miss Beth” is the subject of my first interview. I hope I’m able to capture what I love about her and give you tips for instilling a love of music in your children as well.
