I was surprised at the wealth of powerful information in this book (257 pages text + 44 pages of resources, 15 pages of endnotes, and a 20 page index). If every school board member were to read this book, music and art in the schools would never be threatened by budget constraints.
This book backs up with solid research the position that music affects many aspects of development. Most interesting and readable are the anecdotes of how exposure to music has affected individuals and their families. This is not a book that will guide you in making a prodigy of your child. Its position is that music is a vital component of everyone's development.
Many how-to books make grand claims with steps to follow that are impractical at best and usually unreachable by the average reader. Good Music Brighter Children is loaded with realistic suggestions for incorporating music into your child's (and your) life. Whether you take one or several of these suggestions, you're bound to see benefits in many areas of your family's life. From teaching values through music to exposing your kids to music on a budget, just about anyone can successfully apply these ideas to their own situation. This is a must-have book for parents concerned about their child's education and development.
