Children and music

One Monday morning, it was time for assembly and the National Anthem was being sung. Staff and pupils were singing in unison. Suddenly, a colleague, Mr Essien, screamed with excitement, “Oh my goodness! Wow! This is incredible!” Knowing full well that he was a ‘drama king,’ I turned casually to see why he screamed. He signalled to all the teaching staff to observe a particular pupil. Efe, a thirty-four-month old boy was tapping his laps to the exact beat of the anthem. Everyone watched in utter amazement at the wonder that was unfolding before them. Quickly, the director of the school gave him a drum and he beat it without missing a single beat! He was signed up into the school band immediately.
