“A child who sings is a happy child.” (Elder Enrique Fallabella, “Home: The School of Life”)
Singing can be making music with our voices or on an instrument, solor or in an ensemble. And making music is something that every child and adult can learn to do! It is such a boon to making life better, happier, more enjoyable! The scriptures tell us to “break forth into singing” (3 Nephi 22:1; Isaiah 54:1). I am certain that we had music in heaven before we came to earth and that we will surely enjoy it when we return!
Nurturing music in our lives doesn’t mean you have to be a classical musician, but not all music is helpful to a child’s development. Click on these links to learn more:
