Music is a reflection of the inner world of a person, and therefore, as far as different people are, music in the modern world is so diverse. But in my opinion, true music can be called the one that excites pure and sincere feelings in a person.
The ability to choose from hundreds of thousands of works just such music, filled with meaning and feelings, is called good musical taste. The presence of a person depends largely on the upbringing of parents. And if you are thinking about how to instill a good musical taste in a child, then this article is for you.
Pre-school musical education
If you want your child to be a connoisseur of good music, begin to acquaint the child with music even during pregnancy. Scientists have proven that children perceive music while in their mother’s stomach - listen to your favorite music, folk melodies, jazz, classical music, this will have a beneficial effect on your baby. The main thing is that there is no aggressive rhythm.

A special aesthetic taste is formed in a child under three years old, so it is very important to lay the foundations of musical education during this period. You can include a child of various musical tales. Also, children's music books will have a positive impact on the formation of musical taste. They contain the most famous musical works, the sounds of nature, the voices of their favorite heroes. Such literature contributes to the diverse development of the baby.
When the child grows up and learns to speak, you can buy karaoke books. Playing with them, your child can try his hand in the performance of your favorite songs.
But it is not enough just to turn on the child’s music and listen to it with him, analyze the music you have listened to and talk to the child about it. It is important to convey all the meaning that was laid by the author.

The younger generation will be useful music school. There, teachers open up a whole world to children, which is not accessible to everyone. These skills will allow the child in the present and future life to distinguish between "musical fakes" and music, which is created to excite the hearts, in whatever genre it may be written.

If the child does not understand the meaning of classical music, try to understand the content and disassemble it with the child. Remember, family support is the key to success anyway.
And for a good musical taste, not only musical, but also general education is important. After all, it is much easier for an educated person to distinguish the good from the bad, the good from the poor, whether it's music or something else.
Family and Music
Attend various musicals, ballets, concerts in the philharmonic and in the theater with your children. A joint visit to a musical event will bring together your family and your child’s relationship with music.
What can better help instill musical taste in a child than a parental example? Do not be surprised if your child does not have a craving for good music, if you yourself are a lover of strange meaningless songs with a simple rhythm.
If you see that his interests do not carry anything positive in themselves, then it’s worth saying a “no” to the child a couple of times and explaining why, then with time he will understand his mistakes. For example, there are often people who are very sorry that they once left the music school, and I can say to myself that I am very grateful to my mother that in the third grade she did not allow me to give up music lessons.
Verses or pictures often help to understand the content of music:
