Given recent structural and curriculum changes in early childhood education in Queensland, we are particularly keen to support the work of educators working with Prep-aged children. We believe that meaningful music experiences in the early childhood years are vital for the development of sound musical concepts in later years of school.
Musical Beginnings features examples of excellent practice in Queensland music classrooms and includes footage from a variety of educational sectors, teachers and settings. Featured schools include Forest Lake State Primary School, Clayfield College, St Columba’s Primary School and St Peter’s Lutheran College as they are known and respected within music networks for both the demonstrated expertise of the teaching staff with this age group, as well as the quality of the school’s music programmes.
50 songs and rhymes developmentally-appropriate for Early Childhood settings produced by KMEIA Queensland.
50 tracks of footage showing real teachers with their classes, demonstrating the songs and rhymes with accompanying games and activities.
A4 Blackline masters which include words and pictures for each song/rhyme (useful for take home activity sheets and/or classroom display). Teacher resource sheets, including sheet music for each song and accompanying information about the song/rhyme with ideas for classroom use.
Teacher information on such topics as “how to teach a new song”, “tips for helping children to find a partner” and general information on the value of music education in the Early Years.
