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

…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.
