Musical Child publications are based on the fact that young children learn best when they are actively involved with the people they know well, trust and love. When it comes to musical activity, many parents and early childhood professionals feel that they are inadequate because they don't have the voices of singing 'stars'. These resources help you over that hurdle. Our tracks support your voice in a comfortable range. Our proven activities, available from the Musical Child website, will keep your child interested while you perform the songs. It is our intention that you gain a great deal of enjoyment out of singing and playing with your child.
Who is it for? Parents, grandparents, teachers, childcare professionals, nannies, psychologists, music teachers, playgroup leaders, librarians and of course, children.
This is an Australian early education music series based on the popular music program 'Musical Child’ that has influenced thousands of children in Australia since 2003. We know from experience that easy-to-sing, traditional songs are appropriate for young children because the parents tell us that their child, although often shy and silent in the class, sings in the car all the way home. One mother voiced it this way: "My child is not scared to burst into song at home. It helps his pronunciation of words".
‘Shoo Fly Shoo!’, Part 7 from the series "Singing in My Heart'. Supports play between you and your child or group. Children learn about the habits of the common housefly through fun songs and activities.
