Using Music with Head Start Children.
This pamphlet describes the function of music in Head Start programs. Suggestions are made to help children sense motion and develop their self-concepts and motor coordination skills through rhythmic songs and activities. The construction and use of rhythm instruments are suggested as a means of involving mothers in Head Start programs. Certain types of songs are described as aids in teaching language development. Listening to music is suggested as a stimulus to develop auditory discrimination. A few positive and negative suggestions are given to teachers, and a short section emphasizes that a teacher's lack of applied music training does not prevent successful teaching. Along with an extensive bibliography of recordings, background reading, and resource and song books, a list of music publishers and suppliers and their addresses is appended. (JS)
