Pink Piggies Lesson #2
Some more reserved children are hesitant to participate fully in class. Our grownups can encourage participation (though never force/bribe) by simply engaging in and enjoying class activities themselves, and listening to the music at home. In doing so, you are demonstrating how fun music can be and inviting your child to participate in a safe, non-threatening way.
The voice is a child’s first instrument and, like any other instrument, it’s skills can be developed and mastered through practice. Sound Beginnings utilizes ‘Echo Edie’ to train the voice through meaningful vocal play. Echo Edie experiences are designed to help children extend their vocal range, match pitch, learn to sing in tune, feel the beat, and repeat rhythms. We'll meet her next week!
Optional home fun activity: Color the bells on page 9 of your workbook
(Remember, these activities are optional but can be a great bonding experience to do with your child during the week.)
