Dd4.5 really loves music. She likes singing and dancing. She makes up songs all the time (tune and lyrics) and sings them to me. She enjoys performing. I also have a really cheap barely functional keyboard she likes to play with. A couple of weeks ago, I took her to a classical string quartet concert (free tickets). She was enraptured. She actually paid attention while my Ds 6.5 wanted to ask questions about the instruments, the stage, the lighting etc. He stared at everything else while she stared at the performers and listened quietly. Then she wanted to know how they made the "beautiful" music.
What else can I do to encourage her musical tendencies? I am tone deaf and I have no musical abilities. I am also pretty graceless, so performance arts was never my thing. I also live in a place without too many options for our particular family. I can put her in piano lessons but I think she is too young for that (maybe I am wrong?) The lessons here are pretty regimented and require hard work. No fun experimental classes for kids.
Any ideas what we could do at home? Am I missing some online resources or shows or whatever else to give to her to explore these things further? Do you guys do anything specific to encourage interest in music?
