“ It has been said that children have a natural musical taste and that play is the only activity that they take seriously. If this is so, teachers should not let song practice or any activity seem like work. They should keep it spontaneous. This has been shown to apply even to language teachers.” -- Musical Activities for Young Learners of EFL by Abdulvahit Cakir
