Listening Lessons in the Early Childhood Music Classroom
Koops, Lisa Huisman; Wendt, Ken
General Music Today, v32 n3 p26-28 Apr 2019
In this column, we encourage early childhood music teachers to include music listening lessons in their teaching. We suggest five guiding principles for music listening lessons: selecting varied repertoire, using high-quality recordings and playback, communicating with families and teachers, incorporating movement, and considering the broader importance of repertoire selections. We conclude by sharing four listening lesson ideas. Detailed information is provided on considerations for speakers to use in the classroom.
