3. What pieces are you currently working on? I'm working on a lot of different things right now. Most of these are in preparation for the Carnegie Hall Royal Conservatory Achievement Level 8 assessment in May.


Developing a Musical Language for Young Children
by Dr. Paul U. Lee



At the very moment that a child is born, parents are often at awe with the sudden presence of a new creation, so perfect and full of potential. Their instinctive feeling for their child’s vast potential is mirrored by an amazing transformation that the child will go through during the first few years of his/her life to begin fulfilling that potential. Although a newborn is “pre-wired” to learn life’s many basic but complicated skills, such as language acquisition and motor skills, how well they master these skills will depend on their environment and the types of stimuli that they are exposed to during those early years.

Research findings in developmental psychology have established the existence of developmentally “sensitive” periods, during which a child must learn certain aspects of language or risk never being able to learn them at all. Fortunately, language is so prevalent in our lives that most children are not at risk of missing the sensitive periods of language acquisition. However, we are not so fortunate when it comes to music acquisition.
