Rat a Tat Tat

How is it that children, even as young as infants and toddler, can sway, hum, and dance to the rhythm of the music?
From birth our children begin their relationship with music as we cradle and sing to them or simply hum a melody while rocking them to sleep. As parents and teachers we surround children with music. It exists in every culture and transcends generations. And there is much study to support that fact that music is a natural way to build the brain's connections and set the foundations for learning.
Watch as Charlotte's voice accompanies the tap on her drum and observe how her voice changes when she runs instead of walks. Even the movement of her body is in tune with the rythnm.
