Montessori Quote of the Day

Quote for 23 January 2021

Reading music is like reading words. It begins when by presenting something written we are capable of understanding it and representing it in sounds. It is a mysterious thing like the matter of the alphabet; only here we have a musical sound to correspond to what is written; these are therefore exercises of reading. This fact is independent of the nature of the instrument; the music that is read can be played on the bells or on any other instrument.
