THOMAS BARKER / THE SOUTHERN     Alyce Ward, at right, directs children in a performance of The Hokey Pokey during a recital for Wiggles N' Tunes, a music program by the Talent Education School of Southern Illinois for children aged 8-48 months, Sunday at the Carbondale Civic Center. Many children who participate in Wiggles N' Tunes move up to TESSI's musical instrument program for bigger kids, which also held a recital Sunday afternoon.

And another article...

Alyce Ward, Suzuki piano educator and preschool music educator at Carbondale-based Talent Education School of Southern Illinois, believes the earlier you expose your child to music, the better.

"Surround your child with quality music and see what a difference it can make in your child's overall development," she says. "I didn't realize how important it could be until I had a child myself.  And I can tell you, it has made a difference in my son's life."

Ward teaches an educationally-based music and movement program called Wiggles N' Tunes/span> targeting kids 8 months to four years old. Parents and children participate in a colorful world of music and movement.

"There is so much value in it; it's a group experience, a family experience and a bonding experience," Ward says. "The parent is an important part of the triangle made up of the child, teacher, and parent."

Quoted from the Southern Illinoisan - September 14, 2008.  "How music helps your toddler's development", by Poornima Jayaraman.
