Music for Little People Director Karen Dickinson explains about Music for Little People on Radio Cambridgeshire accompanied by some little ones from Buckden Day Nursery. It's roughly between 1:47:30 and 1:52:40 and you can play the game "count the uses of the word 'absolutely'." We make it 7.
There are 2 music CDs available which replicates as closely as possible what happens in a Music for Little People class in order to maintain the familiar structure enjoyed by the children.
"What is spoiled or omitted at this age cannot be put right later on.
In these years man's future is decided practically for his whole lifetime."
- Zoltan Kodály
Music is not a gift or a talent, but a language that can be learned by anyone capable of attention, awareness and memory.
Music For Little People uses methods developed by two distinguished educators in the field of music: John Curwen (1816-80) and Zóltan Kodály (1882-1967).
We had such a great time with Boogie Pete who was promoting his new show Boogie Pete Live! (7 March at The Junction in Cambridge). He showed us a few of his latest moves, and the children joined in with some of their favourite songs and dances such as Go, Go, Mango; Hey Monkey; Ocean Motion and many more.
