It is easy to forget music’s many roles, especially in the modern age. So often do we get convinced that its purpose is for young adult consumption and about careers, selling “units,” and ego and fame? But music in its purest form has a much more vital role. Education. Music is a great way to convey a message to the young. It is engaging, fun, and melodic and develops and distills artistic skills within them. But it also doesn’t feel like learning, so it is the perfect way to help push them through the early learning curve without them realizing that you are doing so.
And that is what this excellent album from The Broadway Babies is about. It’s a short but perfectly formed album that helps kids build essential connections through music and the arts, gain confidence and arm them with the skills and willpower to pursue their dreams.
Songs such as Magic Microphone aims to make their voice feel strong, while Safety in Numbers promotes confidence and strength from the love of family and friends. Then, Practice Practice Practice teaches kids how to be patient and to never stop practicing.
Whatever it is that children want to get out of music, art, and performance, it starts with the confidence to follow such a course. The Broadway Babies album is the first step in that direction.
