The sooner children learn, the more they retain throughout life. This book, written by Edwin E. Gordon, perhaps the world's principal researcher and thinker in music education:
- Describes appropriate early music guidance and clarifies trhough modeling how it can be put into play by parents and teachers.
- Details in one document how to smoothly make the musical transition from preganancy to early childhood music to school music in a practical and valid manner.
This resource is organized in six parts: 1) the introduction, 2) a guide for pregnant women, 3) instructions for parents and other adults, 4) suggestions for early childhood teachers and parents, 5) resources for elementary school music and classroom teachers, and 6) an explanation of relevant research and a summary of Dr. Gordon't Music Learning Theory. A helpful glossary of words and concepts concludes this book. Professor Gordon includes music examples throughout, and on the accompanying CD he demonstrates tonal patterns, rhythm patterns, songs, and chants.
Parents, early childhood teachers, and classroom instructors will all benefit from this resource that thoroughly explores the way newborns and young children best learn music.
