 Create an early-childhood music curriculum instantly and easily!

Music is resurfacing as a valuable tool to reinforce critical skills for young children. All areas of the curriculum benefit from a consistent music program! But what if you don't play the piano or autoharp?

Now, even non-music-oriented educators can provide stimulating musical experiences for early childhood programs. This accessible program shows educators how to stretch a song through dance, movement, and activities to motivate, stimulate, or relax students for optimal learning. That's a powerful tool!

Each book in the Teaching Tunes Series provides the sheet music for 10 or more engaging songs as well as step-by-step instructions to guide children through the learning process. This easy-to-use resource features:

  • An introduction to each song
  • A comprehensive list of all materials needed
  • Lyrics and music with guitar chords provided!
  • Easy-to-follow descriptions of movements and activities
  • Creative presentation ideas for teaching each song
  • Ideas for linking songs to other areas of the curriculum in early childhood
  • A What Worked and Why? section to help hone presentation skills

For an even more powerful musical experience, a companion CD-ROM or audiocassette tape is available for each book. Use the books and tapes separately, or purchase the complete series of books and CDs or tapes to build an all-in-one comprehensive music
