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.



Tonight I had the absolute joy of going to one of Julie‘s musical play workshops. SUCH a privilege to be able to soak up some of this wonderful lady’s immense knowledge and experience and to be inspired by her beautiful heart for children and passion for music. For anyone who has or works with children, get along to her next workshop or check out her website.
