Let the Little Ones Come with Voice, Dance & Drum
Church Music for Young Children
By Kerri Lynn Nichols
The pieces in this book were developed for and with children ages four through ten to fill the need for appropriate, quality church music for children. They allow for children to use creativity of expression. In the Introduction, a conceptual, process-based approach is discussed in which each lesson focuses on a specific musical concept and the process of exploring that concept. A five-point lesson plan format developed by Anne Green Gilbert is given which incorporates imitation, exploration, developing skills, creating and reflection. BrainDance patterns are also included.
Teaching suggestions are given for each piece. Accompaniments use various combinations of piano, various drums, assorted percussion, and Orff instruments. Student songsheets are reproducible.
For ages 4-10.
