"Musical instruction for a child does not begin in the music lesson. Playtime is the starting point. One should not come to music - it should arise of itself. What is important is that the child be allowed to play, undisturbed, expressing the internal externally. Word and sound must arise simultaneously from improvisatory, rhythmic play."
