Do You Have the Job of Writing a Music Program for Your Centre?

You are probably feeling stressed and stretched for time when faced with the task of preparing a year-long program of preschool music activity ideas for the 3-5 year old group. Program writing is awfully time-consuming, not to mention confusing. That’s because it’s quite a specialised job requiring knowledge, skills, and dispositions in two growth and development fields — early childhood and music.

Chances are that if you start writing your program without expert support, you’ll spend the next 10 weekends and several evenings a week scrolling and reading on the Internet. This can go on for months and really consume your time and energies. The risk of being overwhelmed is high. What’s more, you might still miss some important new research or get fixated on a weird fad.

There are many subtle layers to curriculum design, including how your music program aligns with your national curriculum framework, your local cultural nuances, and each child’s musical background, interests, and needs.

National Early Years Learning Framework

For example, here’s a small taste of how Musical Child aligns with the Australian Early Years Learning Framework (the EYLF V.2).

Benefits for Children in line with the 5 EYLF Learning Outcomes

  1. IDENTITY — Music Is Key to Personal, Group and Cultural Identity
  2. CONNECTION and CONTRIBUTION — Music Engages and Connects Children to Past and Present Artists and Artworks Globally, Creating Music Contributes to Their Community
  3. WELLBEING — Music Releases Emotions and Develops Skills Necessary for Wellbeing
  4. LEARNING — Music Enhances Neural Networks and Supports Learning in Other Fields
  5. COMMUNICATION — Music Is Key to Effective Communication and Self-Expression

It’s complex. In the EYLF there are pages and pages dedicated to learning outcomes, what evidence to look for, and what educators do to promote this learning. You can find many more examples on our blogs and in our courses.

What’s the Solution?

Thankfully that’s our skill set here, we’re early childhood music specialists, so you can relax knowing you’re in the right place to get some authentic resources and expert help. Over the years our team has invested time and action research in developing products that positively affect children and educators alike.

Furthermore, you don’t have to keep buying licenses from us year after year, nor do you have to follow the programs exactly. This is not a franchise, it’s simply a resource and quite a sophisticated one with many layers of learning potential.

With our fully prepared Music and Movement (+ Drama) Curriculum you’ll cover all the bases and soon be customising it to fit your groups. And, we hope, you’ll want to add your personal creative flair.

  1. Well structured program with a clear explanation of the objective of each activity so that teacher could understand the concept behind and able to deliver the subject confidently.
  2. Clear instructions on how to perform the music movement, it is really helpful.
  3. Songs Indexing – the soft copy of the guide and the songs indexing ease songs finding during classes.
  4. Song production – excellent quality song production, the children love the effect and sound, it is rich, variety of sounds according to the song theme.

Overall, the program provides excellent guide and confidence to the teacher that they could learn well on their own with well-structured content and resources.

What You’ll Gain by Using this Teaching Resource

Happy and Responsive Preschoolers

After one month of implementation, you will observe your children happily solve musical problems such as making interesting sounds; keeping up with the beat and complex rhythms; improvising and creating their own rhythmic patterns. They develop their cognitive skills by thinking about the stimulating new content you introduce; improvising and creating their own music; and learning to combine the skills of moving, singing and playing.

A Flexible Series of Music Sessions

Activities in the sessions are specifically designed to engage busy preschoolers; the full lessons are action-packed with movement and music as the main ingredients and yet brimful of language learning opportunities. Explore your mega-resource of flexible music activities designed to engage busy preschoolers and start making up your own worthwhile musical experiences or simply continue with the prepared lesson plans.

Each Educator’s Book will last for half a semester because each lesson plan gives you enough material for 2-4 weeks – There is so much variety and change of pace that this program can work in many ways, e.g. split the lesson plan titles between ages, some for the 3 -year-olds, other for the 4-year-olds; or chunk-down the lesson plans’ into ‘mini-musical experiences’ and scatter them throughout the week. And when you know the songs, you can sing them whenever you like throughout the year! Along the way, we encourage you to add your own creative flair!

A Delightful Way to Monitor and Assess

Monitor, record, and assess your children’s physical skill development over the whole year as the children become junior musicians, singing in tune; moving their fine muscles as they play to the beat on their instruments; improvising and creating their own songs and music; and moving their body through space in time with music of all genres from many cultures.

Socially Competent Preschoolers

The research is strong on the social-emotional gains. Watch your children increasingly demonstrate how they regulate their emotions – a skill critical for self-understanding, and getting along with others; and essential for metacognition or ‘learning to learn.’

Enormous Benefits in Language Development

Children benefit from listening to and learning the songs, the children become better listeners because they regularly tune in to the rhythm of the words in the new songs, learn new vocabulary and practice speech patterns.

You Feel Confident Teaching

You gain confidence doing music in front of your group because the program is well-designed by music education experts; the lessons are prepared so that you can successfully lead the children. And if something does go wrong, you have other activities and lessons ready and you can engage the children in completely new fun things to do week after week.

You Save Hundreds of Hours

Say goodbye to weekend and evening program planning time – you won’t have to figure out the learning opportunities, look up new songs, find the music, think up activities appropriate for the age, or work out a topic that brings everything together – it’s all done for you covering 10 or more weeks in one each of the four programs.

More Detail


In each of the four Educator’s Books, you get a Term Overview, Lesson Plans, and an Index of first lines, allowing you to find any song quickly. Each song has a short score with chords included in the activity page. Each book contains the General Introduction, the list of references, and the glossary of musical terms for the Sing and Play Series.

  • In each lesson’s learning outcomes, you can see the benefits of early learning through music and there’s a specific section telling you what new learning the children might achieve in their language and speech. Across the series of lessons, you see the musical concepts learned: Simple scores with chords and suggestions for Classical music to play for cultural enrichment.
  • Each program will last for a half-semester because each lesson plan gives you enough material for 2-3 weeks – There is so much variety and change of pace that this program can work in many ways. And when you know the songs you can sing them whenever you like throughout the year!
  • Each lesson stands alone, you don’t need to follow a sequence at this age— it is more age-appropriate to provide fascinating experiences. Each lesson is an independent stimulus for participating in a series of preschool music activity ideas. Regular engagement in appropriate musical experiences is enough to promote natural growth and development. A child can enter your classroom and begin participating fully at any stage of the year, joining in at their own level and feeling part of the group.
  • You can use the books in any order, or move the lesson plans around to suit your part of the world, seasons, and festivals e.g. in the US you need Sing and Play 3 and 4 for your Semester 1 so you get the Christmas Lessons in the right part of the year, whereas in southern Australia, you would start the school term in February with Sing and Play 1, and follow with Sing and Play 2 in Term 2 to end .


Each set of lyric charts comes as a printable PDF between 55 and 72 pages

  •  Ready to read on screen or to print
  • Display them in your room so that any adults can sing along with you
  • When parents visit your classroom, they can see what the children have been learning
  • In your music school, lyric charts encourage parents to sing in class time


  • You get  20 digital music albums with numbered sets of mp3s so you can always find the songs you need quickly. Download to your computer and sync to your devices in our suggested playlists, or make your own
  • You get backing tracks to support you as you sing “live”. You also get all the matching vocal tracks assisting you to learn the songs by ear. You can use these vocal tracks if you ever experience any difficulty singing
  • Our song choices include popular children’s songs, interesting nursery rhymes, folk songs, songs in languages other than English, and some new songs we’ve written because we needed them for a theme

Hear some of the music.

This is the album “Uh-oh! Previews“, just a sample of one of the five albums in the ‘Sing and Play 3’ Preschool Music Program.

Here’s what a music educator from the UK says: “Having this library of work has been a godsend . . . it has really made such a difference to me.” Amy Ryan

Rated 5 out of 5 STARS

Ada Mary A’Beckett – July 26, 2020

Clearly, a lot of thought and effort has been poured into all of these packages and plans. They’re so much more than just a bunch of songs and activities, they’re full and accessible plans bundled together under popular themes and interests that flow naturally, extensively linked to EYLF and well supported with current research theory and literature. Downloaded along with several other packages to give our shiny new Music + movement program a big boost. Finding the dual tracks with and without vocals particularly useful for learning songs, then presenting with ‘live’ vocals. Highly recommended. Thanks, Carol!

How I Began (by Carol Biddiss)

I want to  tell you the story of what it was like to start up  Musical Child, my music education service.Here’s what I wrote in my first blog.

“If you are thinking of running music classes for children or indeed for groups of parents and children or in your community centre, daycare, preschool or kindergarten class, perhaps you’ll find it helpful.

… In the first few months there was a lot of reading in order to catch up on the latest research. I was also writing draft programs and playing lots of music in order to gather a repertoire of songs. At first, I had to imagine which ones would work with which age. I’d chosen two age ranges, loosely one to three years and then three to four which I later extended to five. It had been my intention to include a baby program, but it was so much work getting the toddler and preschooler up and running, the baby had to be kept waiting.

…I knew I wanted to work with groups and I also knew that I needed lots of interesting stuff to keep children and parents interested in making music together for a decent stretch of time. A piano lesson for a five year-old might last 30 minutes so I thought I could stretch that out to 45 if there were lots of different activities and different pieces of music.

Planning this endeavour was getting harder by the minute! One of the best decisions I made was to choose my kit of instruments with great care, considering safety and insisting on beautiful sound for my percussion. I also made sure that I had enough for everyone to play their own at the same time.

…One of my venues was a room in the garden at the back of my house. That kept me tidy! It was kind of thrilling and chaotic at the same time to have a new lesson written in time for each week for forty weeks. But there was joy in the accomplishment of getting those ideas about children’s natural musicality ‘out there’ in the wider world,” (only in three suburbs!).

I cannot recommend this product more highly. I have wanted to set up my own music business for pre-schoolers for some time but the rather daunting prospect of sourcing a library of suitable music really did put me off. All of the programmes offer a huge variety of songs all recorded at a suitable pace for little ears. There is so much flexibility within the programmes allowing you to follow and create your own ideas but equally the educator packs give wonderful step by step guidance if you want a more detailed illustration of how to run sessions even down to which instruments to use when. The most important element for me was also FREEDOM. Having run a franchised business in the past, which was wonderful but for obvious reasons completely “scripted” it is just awesome to be able to do my own thing with advice if needed but no constraints. Musical Child gets a huge thumbs up from me and all of my musical little people. Thank you. I will be back. Many, many times x Amy
