Saturate your child in beautiful sounds

I firmly believe that a child who hears recordings of outstanding violinists when they are very young, has an advantage when they start to learn violin at age 5, 6, 7, or 8. If they don't have a mature sound in their ear's memory, it is hard to conceive of that sound later on. Much is to be said about "caught - not taught." In this case I am talking about hidden aural memories of gorgeous violin sounds. Of course, there are millions of other reasons for children to hear beautiful sounds.
