Music teachers and parents know that kids don't always want to pracitice alone. Parents who practice with their kids help in many ways. They reinforce good habits, provide a group experience, and instead of saying "go practice," parents "walk the walk."


Rhythm is all around, all the time--in the soundtrack at the coffee shop, in the birdsong outdoors, in the click and hum of our machines. With Nick and a simple bongo drum, we learned how to make the rhythms we hear *ours*. We learned to find them, to hear them, and to converse with them in joy and love. Take a few lessons, or a lot. (You will want a lot!) Your ears--and your heart--will never be the same. -- Joyce, Houston mom
