Early Childhood and Elementary Music
“Teaching music to young children is such a rewarding experience for me. I enjoy witnessing the development of each child from one week to another. They not only experience a variety of music styles and musical concepts through rich musical environment by singing, moving, listening, chanting, dancing and playing instruments, but also learn social skills by sharing instruments, following instructions, collaborating with teachers and other children. The nutritious musical seeds being planted in young children’s minds prepare the bloom of music gardens. When children are filled with the experience of musical concepts, learning instruments and music reading will become comprehensible and carry more meaning.“
