Lecture 3: Music for Infants and Toddlers
Teddy bear in hand, Dr. Feierabend shares the rich repertoire of infant and toddler folk songs and rhymes that he has collected over the past 30 years. Bounces, wiggles, tapping, clapping and lullabies are demonstrated that can form the basis for enhancing the music growth of infants and toddlers. In addition, simple songs and simple circles are shown that serve as a bridge to older childrens activities. Information on how to develop sequential lessons and set up classes for parents and children provides the audience with practical considerations that will enhance teaching and organizational success.
Dr. John M. Feierabend is considered one of the leading authorities on music and movement development in early childhood. He is Professor of Music and Director of the Music Education Division at The Hartt School of the University of Hartford, and a past President of the Organization of American Kodaly Educators. Dr. Feierabend makes frequent presentations both in the United States and abroad and is the author of more than 60 books, articles, CDs, and DVDs.
