It’s almost impossible to make music with children without moving.
Music can expand and enhance the early childhood curriculum and develop language and literacy skills in young children that are important to later school readiness.
It is time we reclaim the voice and reconnect with the music that nurtures life at the cradle of our existence.
Integrating concepts across the arts and disciplines is not just a nice thing to do. It is essential to a child’s holistic way of learning.
Children respond to us — even imitate our movements —….
Engagement with spontaneous musical play provides countless opportunities to make meaning of the music itself and of life.
Parents are the young child’s first educators.
As early childhood music educators we teach to the whole child.
Educators are reminded that children’s growth and development cannot thrive in compartmentalized, isolated instructional activities that separate the benefits of expressiveness through music and movement from the academic core of their learning
When I taught elementary general music, I spent every lunch in the teacher’s lounge talking with colleagues about students and sharing teaching ideas.
