Notes in the Garten Podcast 9 - Back to Basics: Music Meets the Needs of Children Part 1
Music meets the needs of children is a multitude of ways. For Musikgarten and early childhood music and movement teachers this begins with the realization that a child’s primary learning motivation comes from being in a pleasant and non-threatening environment. This then opens up into two big categories – the physical space of the class and the respectful attitude of the parent and teacher, or the two adults in the room.
Part 1 of this podcast explores the role of the parent who provides a familiar security base for the child to explore, seek out new experiences, and is an important model and partner for all the activities.
