Description: The elements of music we teach do not change—rhythm, melody, harmony, form, tone, and expression. Even if you say you are not a teacher or musician—or if you say “these are just preschoolers”—do I have a barrel for you! We will pull scarves and legos and bouncing balls and puppets and more surprises from that barrel and link them to those elements, enabling preschoolers to experience—and thereby learn—these things. And—you can look at what you have taught, pat yourself on the back, and think “I guess I’m better than I thought!”
