Book Description

1 Nov 2002 0335212247 978-0335212248 New edition
This important book provides practical guidance for parents, teachers and other early years practitioners who are concerned with young children's musical development. The authors highlight the relationship between music and the development of communication, the expression of emotion and playfulness. They show how these three elements, in conjunction with musical activity and experience, underpin all future learning including the development of language. They go on to explore music as a subject in its own right and its role in supporting other areas of the curriculum.

Insights from a wide range of research are presented in a way which makes them accessible to practitioners so that they can be used to inform and develop effective practice. Practitioners and parents are encouraged to have confidence in their own musical ability.

The book provides a wide range of practical strategies and activities. It will show that everyone is capable of enjoying making music with young children and contributing to their future musical development.

Inside This Book (Learn More)
First Sentence
If, within western society, it is suggested that everyone is born musical, many people will respond with comments such as, 'well you obviously haven't heard me sing', 'I can't sing a note', 'I'm tone deaf', 'I can't read music', 'I don't play an instrument ' or 'I'm just not musically gifted'. Read the first page
