I have been running Musical Parenting Groups in Auckland for 4 years, based on the model pioneered by Julie Wylie. The parents are quite clear that these groups are very different to any other music groups they have attended. The points they mention time and time again are these: the intimacy and interactivity of the small group, the enhanced bond established with their children, the musically interesting songs they learn to love and sing, and the wonderfully joyful and stimulating nature of the sessions. To use C.S. Lewis’s memorable phrase, both they and their children are “surprised by joy”.
