Música as a Cultural Tool for Enhancing the Development of Young Latin@ Children
Prieto, Linda; Cervantes, Marco
Dimensions of Early Childhood, v44 n1 p4-10 2016
The authors share how to develop active, stimulating learning environments with a focus on culturally relevant music for young Latin@ children. They provide a backdrop for this article by sharing the role of música (music) in their own lives as children, educators, and for one of them as an artist and the other as a parent of a now five-year-old. They also include brief cultural histories of three particular instruments, simple instructions on how to make them, and how to plan an activity that involves Latin@ families. Familiar music will help children make stronger connections in the classroom thus making the classroom culturally efficacious.
