Description

Childcare providers and educators who musically nurture the children in their care will find enhanced musical aptitude and better performance in other school subjects. They will successfully accomplish these goals by studying the teachings of author Joanne D. Greate, Ed. D. in Music in Early Childhood Education. She presents the why and how of musical nurturing in children. Research on the value of this focus is carried out through specific activities aimed at making the leader more comfortable in singing, moving, playing and listening to music with young children. A supplemental section further prepares the student with an overview of basic musical elements and terms.show more
