When I went to seek solace in Bach’s Cello Suites this morning, which we listen to almost daily, I was horrified to find them gone from my iPod and an emergency check on the computer showed them missing from my iTunes account. Our old computer died over a month ago and in the transfer of everything from the old to the new we appear to have lost some stuff. My boys have become accustomed to the strains of the cello, and the music seems to calm our sensory integration disorder child. In fact, for a child that has to wear ear plugs to block out sounds, he seems to relax when listening to classical music. It is really remarkable.
Perhaps we could listen to the music of one composer for a month? There are several music appreciation programs out there, but I don’t know if these are worth the money when I can just get a variety of CDs from the library. Does any one have any suggestions on how to proceed?
