All of us have experienced the uplifting power of music in some way or the other. Whether it’s a broken heart or a dark mood, music makes everything seem endurable. Scientists say that human beings are hard-wired to respond positively to music; and studies are underway to find ways of channelizing music to help patients heal from mental disorders or even a stroke.
Lisa Henriksson-Macaulay’s book takes the concept forward by outlining methods through which early musical training can be used to maximise children’s intelligence. ‘The Music Miracle’ talks about how learning to play an instrument can contribute towards boosting language, reading and mathematical skills in young people.
The book also points out that early exposure to music encourages children to be confident and considerate. The author elaborates that a musical inclination also increases a child’s communication skills and promotes the entire family’s wellbeing.
The book is fairly easy to follow and has been divided into several sections and chapters, some of which deal with the several stages of development in a child’s life.
The book raises some interesting questions that and busts a few myths. Supported by research and quotes from educators and experts, ‘The Music Miracle’ can be a handy guide for parents looking to maximise their children’s hidden potential.
