Using Our Music Curriculum as a Teaching Tool

A Group of Musical Instruments Used To Teach Young ChildrenResearch in education shows that multi-sensory teaching produces the best learning. Teaching communication skills and social-emotional strategies through a music curriculum is consistent with these theories. The more senses we use, the deeper the learning! This article “Music and Neuroscience” goes further.

Musical Moments™ lessons use auditory, visual, kinesthetic and tactile modes of learning through listening, singing, posters with lyrics, movement, body percussion and playing instruments like the ones pictured below. New and familiar melodies are taught with social-emotional concepts imbedded in the lyrics. Some of the songs included in our music curriculum include; This Little Light of Mine, Count on Me, Little Bird, Brave, Keep on the Sunny Side, Shake It Off and many more. Play a few of these song samples from our new CD below.

“The reason a music curriculum works so well for any type of memory storage is that a song is broken down into memorable segments with rhythm and rhyme. The key to storing information in a child’s long term memory is rehearsal.” – Colin Rose, Accelerated Learning
