As the parent of a teen with autism, I can say first-hand how important music has been in his life, from learning to speak to now socializing in the marching band. This book has practical tips on how to choose an instrument, find a teacher, and even keep up with practice - a must-read for anyone who wishes to expose their child to the benefits of music.

This is another great book from Dorita Berger, which is a must-have for every music therapist, educator and parent. Easy to read, it gives a wealth of information on the neuroscience of music, and explains the "why's" and "how's" of music learning. As a parent, I learned a lot myself!
