Thread Name: BS: Musical chairs: a warning
Subject: Musical chairs: a warning
Those of you who play music to children may be amused or infuriated by a recent UK report that recommends that nursery schools (pre-schools, kindergarten) do NOT allow the children to play musical chairs as it encourages aggression and may lead to injury, law suits etc.
I remember in my childhood (no, Steve P., it wasn't to an Edison phonograph it was to my mother's idiosychratic piano playing) when we played it, it usually ended in tears! As a teenager I seem to remember musical laps was more fun, but probably they'll ban that as encouraging lewd behaviour. Personally I'm looking forward to musical recliners.
