A common and important question parents often ask educators is this: how can we support our children in their music journeys? Linzie Mullins, piano teacher and parent, highlights that exposure, encouragement, positivity, and advocacy contribute to nurturing children in their music development. Mullins also notes that "ensuring our children are in an environment that enhances their gifts and talents is vital in developing confidence and growing their brains in new ways. Research shows that music at an early age, especially, has positive effects on brain development and academic success." As parents and teachers, we can work together to provide a learning environment and support system for our students to thrive and develop a lifelong appreciation for music.
