Born to sing (and play)
According to Ann Dardis, “We’re all born with the abilities of a future concert symphony player.”
Most of us lose that inborn ability as we get older, but the odds of maintaining it go way up, Dardis says, if it’s nurtured from a young age. For the same reasons that young children are easily able to pick up a second language if they’re raised in a bi-lingual household, they’re able to learn the language of music if it’s a regular part of their lives from an early age.
