Japan, where, he is a of the 2Dth Infantry Division, stationed near Osaka. Japan. By DAVID TAYLOR MAItKE AT Education Writer It's easy to teach a child how t o understand music, says Kay Ky.ser. The popular "Professor of the College ol Musical Knowledge" maintains that right from the cradle practically every child Is musical and it is fairly simple to channel his musical talents into constructive lines as he progresses through the years. In a recent statement. Kyscr observed: "You've seen a youngster shaking his rattles, haven't you? He likes the noise it makes and he learns the fundamentals of rhythm at the some time. Later, when that misguided uncle gives him a set fo drums for his third Christ- nns. the child will give you practically endless demonstrations of just how much he knows about rhythm." The ability to distinguish between harmony and discord comes fairly early, too, he says. When a baby is learning to sit up. prop him near a piano and watch him swing at the keyboard." At first he'll bank away at a fistfull of notes every time, hut eventually he will make the discovery that he gets a more pleasant tone if he strikes just one key. Later he'll find out that it i. even more pleasant when he hits certain combinations of notes. Nursery Rhymes Am Important Nursery rhymes are another important .step in the development ot musical memory, says Kyser. A child is more likely to be interested in the musical adventures ol "Three Blind Mice" anil in a Mozart sonata, and it is a good idea to let him progress by easy stages. "When you ar buying toy instruments be sure that they are true to pitch," the "profcs-sor" ad- viies. "Otherwise they may set the child back in developing ati "ear" for pitch. With a little guidance you can help the child develop a pleasant tone in singing those nursery rhymes and other simple jingles •md sing them with some regard for pitch." Once he is steady on his Icet. rhythm begitis to mean something more ihan beating a drum or kicking against the foot of his crib. Give him music that has a strong, definite rhythm (marches are excellent), and his natural impulse is to dance. Of course, one of the best ways to teach anything is to make it a part of daily life. For that, reason, a parent who is anxious to teach] his child music would do well with a phonograph and n good record library- Simple, rather short selections are best for primary instruction. Show the child pictures of the various musical instruments, the point out they are used in records being played for him. Emphasis on Work of Masters Arousing junior's interest in the works of great masters is a job that can be done in easy stages Kyscr says. Saint Eeans, for example, wrote "The Carnival of the Animals," which should delight any child! Tschaikousky's "Nutcracker Suite" and Prokoficff's "Peter and the Wolf" are among other com- (rasitions which have an immediate appeal to children and serve as a fine introduction to the more ponderous works by the same composers, he says. There are some excellent records designed especially to help children start early in their recognition ol the classics- For instance, there is one illustrated album narrating simple stories against classica music backgrounds. Here the story of Billy Bee is told to the tuno of Rimsky-Korsakof's "Plight o the Bumblebee;" the story of the ugly duckling to Saint-Saems' "Tlie Swan." worms, and thus become-.-, the lira;! ,,„. , hl , . ir ,. lh . s t]|lrL]1| , , h( , ,,. 1V w([( Known vllannn to protect aiiamst ! rt ,-cmalcd in scenes in coniph'in<-n! para.sitp--.
