Raise Your Kids on Music…
Raise your kids on music.
No matter what, raise your kids on music.
Teach your children to listen closely to the words.
To appreciate both the simple and the complex.
To engage polyrhythms and 4:4.
To emotionally dance with chord changes.
To engage their heart of hearts.
Teach your children real music, not the slop dished out by the popular music machine.
Every question ever asked has been answered in song.
Every emotion every experienced has been lyricized and prophesied by a musician connected to the soul of man. The heart of God.
Teach your children well.
Teach your children the expanse of the universe, captured in song.
Show them that no question is too complex for the meter of music.
That every answer is but a drum beat away.
Guide your children with the rhythm of love.
Encourage your offspring with a trick of the tale.
Embrace the fruit of your loins by enlightening them with the words of truth and curiosity and adventure and passion chanted by the couriers of song.
You will make a million mistakes.
Suffer a thousand cuts, raising your children.
Give them, and you, the ministering salve of music.
Your failures will be forgiven.
The seed of knowledge will bloom.
The grace of the Almighty will smile upon them.
Give your kids a fighting chance.
Give them the sword of Lyricism.
The heart-beat of Rhythm.
The shield of the perfect Chorus.
The Bridge over every troubled water they will ever experience.
Whatever you do, do this.
Give your kids the love of song.
