Learning Through Music
By Herbert Levin and Gail Levin
150 pages

A collection of 42 musical activities designed for classroom teachers, music teachers and music therapists to use in their work with children of various ages, abilities, and needs at the primary level. With over 100 variations, involving singing, moving and playing instruments, these developmentally sequenced activities have been carefully crafted to help children develop: perceptual motor abilities, attentional skills, behavioral limits, speech and language skills, and relational concepts. The music is superb, the piano accompaniments are easy, the activities are great fun for the children, and each one comes with complete instructions on how to engage children at various levels of difficulty. Inasmuch as this a reprinting of their highly acclaimed original work of the same title, the effectiveness of these activities has already been demonstrated in various settings.
