When was the last time you felt like you were an intruder when you walked into a nursery room or a parent and baby group group to sing songs and one of the babies started to cry, crawl away or stare at you intently? Probably quite recently, because that’s what babies of a certain age do when something unexpected happens.
Thankfully, that’s the sort of thing that researchers want to know and these Baby Music Modules are based on research that has been carried out only recently. Once you understand the ways babies process music to learn about culture, identity, friendliness, sharing, communication and self-expression you won’t feel like an intruder — you’ll feel that what you do is “important and hence fulfilled” as one of our happy customers said.
If you want to run music sessions for babies, don’t feel out your your depth. Link the music experiences you offer to learning outcomes and you will not only gain confidence but also the respect of colleagues and clients.
