Children need opportunities to play, for it is through play that they develop socially, musically, kinesthetically, and cognitively.
Today's children are tomorrow's leaders.
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.
Engagement with spontaneous musical play provides countless opportunities to make meaning of the music itself and of life.
It is time we reclaim the voice and reconnect with the music that nurtures life at the cradle of our existence.
When I taught elementary general music, I spent every lunch in the teacher’s lounge talking with colleagues about students and sharing teaching ideas.
As early childhood music educators we teach to the whole child.
The arts hold the soul of our culture and the heartstrings of our children…Let all the arts ignite your music, and your music teaching will be ignited too!
Listening starts to take shape well before birth and it plays an essential role on the child's sensorimotor, social-emotional, and cognitive development.
