Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Can't read music? Can't play an instrument? Can't sing without embarrassment? And the children are looking to you to lead the musical activities that they love. Jackie Silberg, award-winning author, says if you can tap two spoons together, push the buttons on a tape player, sway from side to side or twang a rubber band, you have all the skills necessary to teach music.

Music is listening to sounds with children, learning to notice differences like high and low sounds. Music is noticing rhythm, like in falling rain drumming on a roof or on a plaid shirt — rhythm is everywhere. Music is words, the stories they tell, the sounds they make, the rhymes that make words sound fun, even silly sometimes. Music is a simple melody. Put them all together and suddenly you are teaching music. What fun! And the children are not just enjoying music, they are learning listening and observation skills, thinking skills, creativity, math and sequencing skills, and lots more. But don't wait to use this book just to teach music, use it every day because the games and activities are so easy and so much fun.

Synopsis:

Ways to teach music to children for the musically hopeless.

Synopsis:

Can you tap your feet to a beat? Read aloud? Sway from side to side? Twang a rubber band? If the answer is yes, you have all the skill necessary to teach music to children. Chapters include activities that teach the elements of music, such as rhythm, sound, language, movement, and instruments.

Synopsis:

Who says you need an opera singer's voice to teach music to young children? Fascinating, easy activities help even the most tone-deaf adult show children the wonder and magic of making and hearing music. All you need are things like rubber bands, paperclips, jingle bells and paper plates to bring the joy of music to children.

Synopsis:

Can't read music? Can't play an instrument? Author Jackie Silberg explains what it takes to teach children music, and just how easy and gradifying the experience can be. Filled with easy, fun games and activities. Line drawings.
