The importance of rhythm


"The fetus normally learns rhythm and vibration through a mother's heartbeat and breathing as well as from the constant electrical impulses and EMFs (electromagnetic fields) being given off by these organs. ... Babies born without this sense of internal rhythm cannot calm themselves with self-generated rocking, crooning or sucking.

Instead, they just fret."

pg. 149 "Smart Moves, Why Learning is Not All In Your Head" by Carla Hannaford.

WOW! That was amazing. Too bad every child is not given the opportunity to explore music like that.

That's why what you do, every day is so important in helping parents understand what it's really about: music.

Thanks Aimee.

Love the hat, girl.
