Music with the Under-fours
The importance and value of music in the care and education of very young children is increasingly recognised. This book looks closely at early musical development and how this translates into ways of supporting the musical activity of babies, toddlers and young children, keeping in mind the diversity of preschool work.
Key topics include:
- pre- and post-natal musical experience
- musical parenting
- lullabies and play songs
- baby music sessions
- toddlers' music play
- songs, musical games and other activities
- young children's singing
- music play with instruments
- working with adults to develop musical opportunities.
This text provides a valuable synthesis of recent thinking in this area, as well as practical suggestions for fostering creativity through musical activities. An original and inspiring book which will be welcomed by anyone responsible for the care and education of preschool children.
