comment How and when might I start teaching the language of music?
I agree with your sentiments that imposing one's own interests/desires on a child is ultimately detrimental. However, my aim is not to have my child be a musical savante where I wasn't. Rather, I want to provide her with a certain level of music 'literacy'. In the same way that we're expected to know how to read and perform basic arithmetic, I want to emphasize the equivalent of this for my daughter early in her life.

Please, feel free to edit my title if you can think of a better equivalent to ABC. I toyed with "1st2nd3rd", but that just didn't feel right.

@Karlson I have addressed your question by expanding upon my original post.
