How You Gonna Keep ‘Em Down on the Farm — Andrew Bird, Soldier On
"I started violin with the Suzuki method when I was 4. The “mother tongue” was the basic tenet of this method: while kids are malleable and learning language, teach them the language of music through repetition and molding. This is the way melodies got into my bones. I would chew my cereal to melodies. I would breathe in and out to melody and at some point early on I began to whistle. If I wasn’t sleeping or talking, I was whistling."
