However, the critical time for musical development is the early childhood years, says Robert B. Smith, University of Illinois of child development and music professor education. A new U. of I. circular, "Developing Music Abilities in Young Children" suggests some things parents can do to foster development in listening, rhythm, movement, and sing ing. The 12-page circular was prepared by Chad B. Howells, former Extension family life specialist, in consultation with Smith. The record that accoinpanics the circular contains selections that can be used with the listening program as well as with the singing and movement suggestions. Smith states that developing the ability to listen is crucial to a child's musical progress. Because of his eagerness to participate in any musical activity, the young child has the tendency to try to sing, move, or play before even listening to the music. Smith emphasizes that a child must learn to listen carefully before he develops his other musical abilities. In his studies, Smith found that participating in quality music experiences at a young age is particularly valuable for boys in developing vocal skills, interest and motivation, and general music achievement. Girls, on the other hand, develop musical skills without the early experience. His studies also showed that almost every child can learn to sing tunefully if given the proper opportunity and experience. This fact challenges the idea of tone deafness claimed by some. Teaching a song to your child can be rewarding experience shared by both parent and child. Time spent together in a good musical program can also enhance parent-child relationships now and later in life. • LET'S GO * SATURDAY, June 181h to Amnna, Iowa, slopping at the Birthplace of President Hoover.
