Music in the Christian World View
Are you the parent of a student involved in music? For many children, music may be their favorite subject; they thrive and excel in such training. But others may never finish or progress further in their musical training. In fact, a large number of children simply give up and “drop out” of studying music in their teenage years. Why is this? Join author and speaker Dr. Ian Hodge as he answers this question and discusses the value and effect of music on education. Listen as he shares the ways in which music can enhance learning and the ways in which exposure to the wrong types of music can actually disrupt a child’s learning and growing process. Bring your questions and come prepared to explore world view issues relating to music, the Bible, and home education!
