Early Teens Ages 13 – 18
Talk to your teens about the music they love and share their enthusiasm. Teens listen widely and will surprise you with the diversity of their taste. Encourage them to attend as many different kinds of concerts as possible.
Protect their ears! Encourage earplugs for rock concerts, discos, etc. Educate your children on the effects of extremely loud music on their hearing (loss of hearing and tinnitus).
Look for appropriate summer music camps and encourage your children to consider one.
Attend a wider variety of music and dance performances – musical comedy, light opera, Broadway productions, jazz, rock, ballet, flamenco to name just a few.
