I want to highlight another article from the church magazines relating to Primary Music Leaders!  Friend to Friend is an interview with Elder Quentin L. Cook found in the April 2000 Liahona!

Camille's Primary Ideas: Friend to Friend The Importance of Primary Music Ensign Article

My favorite quote from the interview is:

…one of the most important callings in the Church is the Primary music leader.

The interview discusses Elder Cook’s experience with primary music:

Although I recall giving talks in Primary and taking part in other ways, some of my favorite Primary memories are of singing. I love the Primary songs. I still enjoy singing them. They teach of the Savior and the goodness of the gospel.

In fact, I think one of the most important callings in the Church is the Primary music leader. It is certainly the calling that has had the biggest impact on our family. My wife, Mary, served in that calling, so we often sang Primary songs while our children were growing up. Whenever we were riding in the car and usually for family home evening, we sang Primary songs. Mary taught the songs with such enthusiasm and excitement that even the younger children were interested.

After we sang, we often talked about the words of the song. Some of our best gospel discussions have come after singing Primary songs. What a glorious and fun way to learn gospel principles.

I couldn’t agree more!  Primary music has a HUGE impact on little minds!  Find the full article HERE.
