The Musical Child: Using the Power of Music to Raise Children Who Are Happy, Healthy, and Whole (Paperback)
by Joan Koenig
A pioneering music educator reveals how music can supercharge early childhood development – and explains how parents and educators can harness its power.
Since opening her famed conservatory in Paris over three decades ago, Joan Koenig has led a global movement to improve children’s lives and minds with the transformative power of music. With a curriculum and philosophy drawn from cutting-edge science, L’École Koenig has educated and empowered even its youngest students – from baby Max, whose coordination and communication grow as he wiggles and coos to targeted songs and dance routines, to five-year-old Constance, who nourishes her empathy, creativity, and memory while practicing music from other cultures.
In The Musical Child, Koenig shares stories from her classrooms, along with tips about how to use the latest research during the critical years when children are most sensitive to musical exposure and most receptive to its benefits.
A gift for parents, caregivers, musicians, and educators, The Musical Child reveals the multiple ways in which music can help children thrive – and shows how, in the 21st century, its practice is more vital than ever.

Most Western music is based on a system of notation that evolved around 1600 out of earlier practices. The starting point for any opera is the full score, which contains all individual voices and instruments arranged in a specific order on the page. The written music—representing the sounds a composer creates in his head—then comes to life performed by singers onstage and played by the orchestra.
