HOOPS FOR SPATIAL AWARENESS AND MUSICAL PLAY

Hoops are a wonderful music prop and can be used in so many creative ways within musical play for circle dancing, spatial awareness, understanding prepositions such as up, down, in out, through, under/over.
We have been singing the children’s ideas such as being in our space ships, rocket, bus, pirate ship.
We have been composing our own individual tunes which Tamara accompanies on the flute. As children move up and down the 5 note or octave of hoops, they choose which “notes” to play. These notes are sung and played as the child moves slowly/quickly, thus reinforcing children’s innate musicality, listening, watching, waiting, creativity and building their self esteem. Every child’s idea is valued, there is no right or wrong way to play.
Parents report that their child is singing and playing music games all the time at home. They regularly involve the family and delight in being the leader.

Testimonials

We recently had Sarah, from Julie Wylie Music come to run a wee music session at my daughter’s second birthday party. Zahara beamed from start to finish at the incredibly engaging songs and activities Sarah had them do. All of her wee friend’s Mums have since come back to me to tell me it made them realise how much their child loved music. I was moved to see how much my daughter loved her music party, and I loved being able to join in with her. I would thoroughly recommend Sarah to anyone in the future. Thank you, from Us.
