Is Your Child a Born Musical Talent

It is really easy to amuse a toddler with music and it can be any kind of music, either a fun and silly children song like “Wheels on the bus go round and round” or a popular pop song nowadays. The moment a tune catches the toddlers’ ear, they will react to it by stomping the feet and tapping their toes while jumping up and down and shaking their bodies. For the average toddlers, everything only stops at simple reactions: they will not try to keep the tempo of the music or sing a single note, and will most likely bump into their friends while dancing along to “Five little monkeys jumping on the bed”. However for a musically gifted child, he is in most case more developed in these areas. Your carpet ape who can create a random beat with your pots or his toys may have all the potentials of a drummer in a rock band. Check out this step-by-step instruction below to know if your toddler has what it takes to become a musical talent in the future.

The way they tap their toes and fingers, sway or walk around is often in sync with the music, either the one they are listening to at that moment or those which they may have heard earlier. When listening to a song, a musically gifted toddler will instinctively play a drum or tap a tambourine in tune with the beat of the song.

The European-based music usually has from three to four movements (movement means a piece of music which can stand on its own but is created to fit in with the stream of ideas that build up the symphony). The first movement is usually a mini sonata with a lively tempo. The second movement contrasts with the first one with a slow tempo and the third movement will be a lively or an elegant dance-like work depending on the contrasting meter (usually 3/4 or 6/8). The last movement is often a loud mini sonata filled with joy to send the audience home with a smile on their face.

Symphony uses instruments from all four sections (strings, brass, percussion and winds) and seeks for all spectrums of rhythm, harmony, dynamics, timbre and melody. The word symphony means “sounding together”, which is the reason the symphony requires the combination work from all four sections. That was the basic definition of a symphony; however as mentioned before, there is no perfect rule so a number of exceptions may arise.
