Musical Children: Engaging Children in Musical Experiences, Second Edition, is designed for students majoring in early childhood or elementary education, or music education. It highlights the important role music plays in a child’s education and life, offering a practical resource for bringing together music and young children during these important early years. Thirty-seven engaging musical experiences help pre-service and in-service teachers—some who may only have a limited background in music—learn how to make music a part of their students’ daily lives, with strategies that are ideal both in and out of the classroom. Musical Children is an invaluable guide to assist teachers in engaging children in meaningful, joyful, and playful musical experiences.

  • The 2014 National Core Music Standards
  • Updated and expanded prekindergarten chapter
  • Greater focus on music fundamentals
  • Expansion of Dalcroze, Orff, Kodály, and Music Learning Theory approaches
