S4E52: Music Education in the Charlotte Mason Paradigm with Megan Hoyt

S4E52: Music Education in the Charlotte Mason Paradigm with Megan Hoyt

The New Mason Jar with Cindy Rollins

...what if the devitalisation we notice in so many of our young people, keen about games but dead to things of the mind, is due to the processes carried on in our schools, to our plausible and pleasant ways of picturing, eliciting, demonstrating, illustrating, summarising, doing all those things for children which they are born with the potency to do for themselves? No doubt we do give intellectual food, but too little of it; let us have courage and we shall be surprised, as we are now and then, at the amount of intellectual strong meat almost any child will take at a meal and digest at his leisure.
