Choose your favorite composer. It is always a good idea to start with your favorites when you are teaching your child. Your natural love for what you are presenting will naturally carry over into your child’s own taste. When you are comfortable executing the Listening Program, you can then venture into what is less familiar territory for you.

Sometimes a child does not like a particular piece of music. If so, put it away and try another piece of music. Someday you might want to try that piece of music again; what a child does not like today can become a favorite at another time.
