  1. I think it’s really important for kids to start out with musical training, but I never realized all the benefits. It makes sense that music can have a calming and therapeutic affect on anyone. I love the idea of starting out with musical toys and then graduating to these cute tiny instruments. My best friend is about to have a baby, and we’re pretty musical, so I may just get her a gift like that. Thanks for the idea!

    1. Thank You Sunny,

      You can never go wrong giving a musical gift of any type, I even think the musical jewelry boxes are great gifts and every time you are getting ready to go out it will play you a little tune.

  3. I teach music to kids and I can endorse everything you have said here. We are all born with some music in us and when kids learn to play, they also learn all the life skills of discipline, patience, overcoming errors, performance, and goal setting. All children should learn to play….an instrument.

    1. Thank You JJ,

      I appreciate you reading my article post and sharing your own experience, I learned to play my first musical instrument in grade school and I still today enjoy playing musical instruments.

      I really feel music is more important than many of us imagine, we should appreciate music more
      and find ways to enjoy it more often than we already do.
