This article analyzes the book "Children and Music," by Beatrice Landeck. Quite justifiably Landeck, who has had some twenty years of experience as a teacher of children, believes that music has generally been offered to children on a level which is exalted to the point of being demoralizing, that teachers have been unwilling to admit that their young pupils are usually not exceptionally talented. She mends an approach which is much less self-consciously musical, and deals with music on a relatively simple level. She feels that children are more susceptible to music as a folk art than as a fine art; that, they can not only enjoy, but also they can participate in folk music while they are very young.
