Here’s a simple way to encourage your youngster to compose music with you:

Do ya remember the repetitive chords to “Heart and Soul”? You know, that infamous duet that all the kids plunked out on Aunt Gerty’s piano during every Christmas party?

Well, consider it useful knowledge!

You will play the bottom part of the song (C chord, A chord, F chord, G chord) while your toddler plays any of the “white notes” that she wants – one note at a time. While you repeat the C, A, F, and G chords (you can even get fancy and change up the speed, etc.), your youngster will compose a beautiful melody!
