Nurturing the Spark
Wondering how to nurture the musical spark in your child? Then join us on 28th Nov, at 6.30pm for an enriching conversation with world-renowned virtuoso cellist, composer, cultural entrepreneur, educationist and mother to a musical prodigy — Saskia Rao-de Haas.
The exposure to music undoubtedly has a beneficial effect on a child’s cognitive, intellectual and emotional development. While every child can benefit from exposure to music, some children have a natural affinity for melody and rhythm. The challenge for parents is to identify and grow this spark into a sustained and lifelong relationship as a student, creator, audience member and supporter of the arts. This conversation with Saskia Rao De Haas will shed light on parents’ dilemmas of creating a musical environment at home, identifying an area of a child’s talent, finding the right educator, and sustaining the child’s interest through the years.
