First Steps in Music

The First Steps in Music series is an attempt to preserve the rich repertoire of traditional and folk literature, and to enable today's families to recall and learn songs and rhymes that have nurtured wonder and joy in young people for generations. The authentic affection, innocence, and wonder of these songs and rhymes have the potential to plant the seeds of lifelong sensitivity and imagination.

The songs and rhymes contained in our classes have been gathered over the past twenty years. Many of the most interesting examples were collected from the elderly, who often recalled songs and/or rhymes with great affection, reminding them of loving moments the had shared with young people in the past.

The First Steps in Music curriculum is based on an extensive survey of research related to the development of singing and movement skills in young children, as well as many years of practical experience sharing musical activities with this younger age. It is this combination of a research-based curriculum, quality literature, and practical experience that makes the First Steps in Music curriculum unique.

John M. Feierabend: First Steps in Global Music

Review: What better way to discover the world than to sing songs that have captivated the imaginations of children across the continents. In this amazing collection of songs children love to sing, Karen Howard truly opens the door to encountering songs from diverse cultures and experiences, on themes from family, animals, flowers, food, and more. The repertoire in First Steps in Global Music is particularly accessible for teachers and children wishing to discover these great songs. Organized by geographical region, Howard provides the context and guidance-including references to recordings-for these songs to come alive. She further organizes the songs based on First Steps activity categories: Fragment Singing, Simple Songs, Movement for Form and Expression, Movement with the Beat, and Songtales.

John M. Feierabend: The Book of Movement Exploration

Review: Children often spontaneously dance around the living room or run from place to place. The activities in The Book of Movement Exploration bring out these strong movement impulses in children, as well as gentler ones. While burning off a little energy, children will develop a movement vocabulary as they develop motor skills and enhance their creativity. Performed quickly or slowly, with music or without, solo or in a group, these activities make for fun, engaging educational experiences for children (and adults)!
