It's Music - active listening for children

This CD and the accompanying booklet is designed to introduce children to basic concepts in music.

Refer to the booklet and listen to the music simultaneously. Draw your child’s attention to the connection between the visual image and the song they are listening to. The characters in each picture draw attention to a fundamental principal of music.

The suggestions for use outlined under each picture help the untrained parent or instructor come to an understanding of the concept being presented and suggest ideas for involving the child in the music.

There are 23 songs which have been imaginatively arranged and we have used a large range of “real” instruments including strings, woodwind, brass and percussion and they have recorded in a way that preserves their distinctive tonal qualities.

There is an opportunity to move, dance, sing and listen carefully. You can do a lot for your child’s musical understanding outside the realm of structured music education.
