“Let us take our children seriously! Everything else follows from this…
only the best is good enough for a child.” Zoltan Kodaly
We have fun in music class not only with singing but with listening (all different kinds of music), beat, rhythm,
instruments of all kinds, music games of all kinds, and dancing. All of this facilitates the learning of not only
music literacy and performance, but classroom literacy and learning across all the disciplines. I teach with the National Coalition for Core Arts standards in mind as well as the Sunshine State Standards; links provided below for your information. Also, check out these links for websites that are great for kids to explore and learn more about music theory and other facets of the musical world in a child-friendly forum.
