From Julie:

When children are able to experience music through movement, dance and sensory play such as drawing, painting to music, they develop a strong sense of the form of music, the beginning, middle end of a piece of music. They develop understanding of how to listen and respond creatively to musical expression, to the sequences, phrases, timing, rhythmic patterns and melodic contours of the music. Such play opens up the world of musical imagination and a sense of appreciation and wonder. Musical appreciation is developed when parents sing, dance and play musically with their children and when they are given many varied opportunities to experience the world of music and music making.



 Thank you very much to offer a wonderful music workshop for Chinese ECE educators in Auckland. We have learnt so much music teaching ideas for babies, toddlers, over 3 and special needs children. Most importantly, we learnt the ways that how you communicate and interact with children at different age groups in the music activities. I was hoping I could be a professional ECE music teacher like you and help many young children to build their musicality at the beginning of their life.

非常感谢Julie Wylie能为我们奥克兰华人幼教老师带来这场精彩的幼儿早教音乐培训课。在您的课堂上,我们学到了如何与不同年龄组的小朋友交流,并开展音乐活动。作为我个人来讲,我希望我也能成为向您一样的优秀的早教音乐教师。我希望在我的教育职业生涯中,通过我的努力,能帮助更多的小朋友在少儿时期对音乐产生兴趣,并在幼儿园里学习到基础的音乐知识与技能。
