What is MusicTALKING?
MusicTALKING is a communication tool using popular music.
A companion guide works alongside the “Goals and Values” theme CD
through lyrics, anecdotes, and talking tools to give parents tips on
discussing the subject of songs with their kids. The CD contains 13
original, hit songs by original artists—no remakes.
How does it work?
It can work in a number of ways. For example, you could just let
your child listen to good music with positive messages. Or, what we
suggest, is that you give your child an opportunity to listen to the
songs and figure out which ones are their favorite. After you know
which songs your kids enjoy, we suggest using the companion guide to
get the most out of the positive messages in those songs. The
companion guide will give you “talking tools,” tips on questions and
facts you can use to engage your child in conversation regarding the
content of the song.
