Time to "Jazz up" Your Classroom, Montessori-style!

HAVE YOU BEEN THINKING THAT IT'S TIME TO PUT SOME "PIZAZZ" INTO YOUR PRESCHOOL CURRICULUM? MUSIC IS A GUARANTEED SUCCESS!
Scroll down a little to see my video of the children making music and more in the Montessori music room.
I know you just might be thinking that I have a bias about music! Okay, that is true, but is anyone really going to deny that young children love making music ? 

You can start your school year out with a jazzed up Montessori music curriculum that will impress not only the children, but their parents as well.

I will show you the way to create an engaging, fun, and sequential music program that helps children build cognitive skills as well as develop a love for music that will last a lifetime! And, the best part of it all, is that I incorporate the Montessori method into every lesson so that you and the children will succeed!

You are warmly invited to check out my little slideshow below that gives you a glimpse of the Montessori music room and how much fun it really is... 




Not only does my Musically Montessori eCourse give you a video presentation of a new music lesson each week, but you will also have a PDF to download.  That PDF will be chock full of lesson activities, suggestions and printables for follow-up shelf works, and links to resources and music.

During this twelve week course, you'll have a chance to work with me as your coach! From my many years of working with children of varying ages in Montessori environments from rural to urban to international settings, I have gleaned the best of my music lessons for you, so that you can learn how to create a successful music curriculum for your group.


The first lessons will feature the concept of "steady beat" in music, one of the most important components to a successful musical experience no matter what age you  happen to be!

My playful approach engages little ones with interesting movement activities as well as fun listening lessons and games that show the contrast between a steady beat, such as a march by the French composer, Bizet,  and no steady beat at all...like the sound of popcorn popping!

I'll be featuring music from Tchaikovsky and Mozart right off the bat, since these composers have so many songs that children already recognize. And, Montessori children love to hear the real music terms and the actual names of the composers. These little ones are always fascinated with how these great musicians figured out how to make their music and children greatly enjoy marching to a steady beat so that this important music concept is incorporated into the body through "muscle memory." 
  
Then, you can set up some simple, yet informative, shelf works that enhance the music learning on an individual basis during work time in the classroom. I have lots of easy-to-assemble activity ideas and even printables to help you get set up for the week right away.

And, if you are signed up for the Trillium Montessori Summer Summit that starts TOMORROW (!) then you will have a special introduction to my approach to music education when you join my Musically Montessori workshop on Wednesday the 20th at 5:00 PM EST. 

What's great about the Summer Summit is that you can actually watch my workshop anytime you desire for a whole year! So, if you happen to miss it on Wednesday, you can rest assured that it is waiting for you when you have some time to hang out with me...
