Music from the children

Children's religious programSeeking Inspiration?
Almost universally, children love music. They love to sing, they love experimenting with musical instruments, they love listening to music.  Children have a confidence and exuberance that allows them to throw themselves into new experiences, but their spirits can be easily crushed as well. In the US, the children’s choir from the Sandy Hook school has become a beacon of light and hope after the 2012 December shooting.
You could write a story from a child’s point of view.  How does this child experience music?  Do they become a great musician or does an experience put them off?
