There was an interesting programme just now on BBC radio 4 Joan Armatradings favourite choirs/ (tues).
As well as visiting a choir she was talking to a scientist about health benefits of singing.
Black Walnut, I suppose I exagerated. I am not against practise and the scientific study of learning. I do think, though, that teaching something you are interested in is more likely to be successful. And with under 5s any learning that catches their interest is valuable. Young children are very diligent at practising the skill they want to master, if we provide equipment and environment to allow it.
