Children and music
"Young children respond naturally to the sounds of music. Music is an important aspect of play and can be a means of combining cognitive, affective, and motor development in young children. A wide variety of experiences in music are available for the growth and development of children, but it is important that the adult select appropriate materials and experiences to enhance this growth and development. The focus of musical experiences in young children is toward natural responses and perceptions which occur through play experiences in sound and movement."--First paragraph.
