This book, like its author, embodies the meaning of integrity! It combines theory and solid research to guide us through fun, easy to use activities that help us all parent the whole child. Jeffrey shows how music can be a foundation for bonding. From this base, he provides ways in which music can build self-regulation, attention, frustration and anxiety management, good sleep patterns, friendships, academic readiness, physical fitness, and an appreciation for all cultures. Unlike other parenting books, this not only works, but will bring joy to your homes!

I've known Jeffrey for almost 20 years. He is a thoughtful, talented, knowledgeable and caring musician, therapist and parent. His book is a beautiful guide for parents and teachers on how to share music with kids, even if you think you can't carry a tune.
