Being There: Creating Music-Making Opportunities in a Childcare Centre
de Vries, Peter
International Journal of Music Education, v24 n3 p255-270 2006
In this case study of the impact of professional development (PD) activities in music on staff at a childcare centre, the researcher was also the provider of PD. The needs of the staff and their preferred mode of PD delivery were negotiated with the researcher, resulting in a number of sessions where new resources and teaching ideas were modelled with children, with staff observing and participating in activities. The study reports on staff reaction to the sessions and how they used material from the PD sessions in their own music teaching. (Contains 1 table.)
