Music has been an integral part of my daughter Laila’s journey into toddlerhood since the womb. I nurtured her with spiritual sounds and played music my heart called for until her birth day. Even on the day she entered this world, she could hear chanting mantras from my little Jambox portable speaker beside us. I really can’t wait to see what instrument shes going to learn when shes older. I just hope she has a passion for music like I do. I really like these electronic drums so I’m hoping she’ll be a drummer! I guess we’ll have to wait and see!!
Here are 10 reasons your baby/toddler should learn music:
Ashley learned alot about fun, music, and learning right from the start by being the third oldest of seven children. Music can lead to career for many, these days it is more accessable then ever! You can get the best preamp under $200 to begin recording your own music. The neighbors could hear her Dad’s whistling a mile down the road and the kids were always putting on musicals and concerts for the whole neighborhood whether they liked it or not! They were equipt with costumes and a portable music stand to make it as “professional” as possible! Growing up in a family of 7 children, was the most chaotic, joyful experience ever and only enhanced her love for children, music and family. She was one of the first successful women sales reps for IBM in Worcester Massachusetts. She graduated with a double major in Theatre and Communications and received her Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Northern Colorado. She also attended the Family Light Music School in Sausalito, California and learned Belacanto Italian style opera vocal technique. She even had fun touring around the wild west with Jessie Colin Young, Neil Diamond and John Denver, back in the day! In 2006, Ashley had the honor of singing a concert for 100 blind children in Calcutta India. She enjoyed being a head teacher at pre schools in California and received the International Teachers Excellence Award for The Gymboree Play and Music Center in Boca Raton, Florida. Currently she enjoys being a zany, silly, clever, sing/song character to Laila and many other children here in sunny southern California. For more info visit: http://ashleysmusikids.com.
