Music Matters K-6

2 November 2017

Graham Sattler builds your confidence to implement the music elements of the Creative Arts syllabus.

The benefits music activity brings to the classroom and school communities are particularly significant and it benefits learning interaction with and in all of the key learning areas.

…hearing is the sense that is fully developed when we are born… it is essential for the development of human beings… if that very natural process is interrupted at school, that’s actually a very strange and artificial thing…

There are many simple songs that you can just start singing with the children and they can sing it back, or clap or stamp a steady beat or sing in a round. …to join in successfully, you have to listen very carefully and that critical listening is something that benefits all learning.
