"Never before have I seen such a comprehensive and in-depth review of the
neuroscientific and psychological basis of the effects of music on young
children. Parents and many others will be anxious to read it because of its
very important message. Liisa Henriksson-Macaulay has blazed an important and
pioneering trail for others to follow, and I wish this book every success."

"I am pleased to commend this is a very positive contribution to the public awareness of the power of music to transform children's lives. Every child is musical. By encouraging their children to make the most of their innate musical potential, parents can support much wider cognitive, emotional and social development as their children grow. Liisa Henriksson-Macaulay's narrative is engaging and full of rich personal anecdote, as well as a synthesis of key research findings and useful examples for parents of how music can be used successfully to nurture and strengthen children's development."
Professor Graham Welch, Institute of Education, University of London
