Music Experiences in Early Childhood.
Andress, Barbara
This book presents a program of music experiences for young children (3-5-year-olds) which focuses on an experiential discovery approach to music, rather than on imposing ideas and a repertoire on the child. Early sections of the book discuss the importance of the child-centered music program, its process and characteristics, and the role of the teacher in implementing this approach in the preschool setting. Subsequent chapters discuss the child and movement, the child and singing, playing with sound-making objects, implications of child development theories for music, program evaluation, and the musically skilled teacher. An appendix includes definitions, a resource list, guitar chords, songs to use throughout the day, and a bibliography. (Author/MP)
