I specialise in delivering and writing early years music sessions as well as music training for universities and colleges. I believe strongly in developing CREATIVITY as a precursor to academic skills because of the school-readiness skills that are involved in high quality creative activities. And as musical is a universal language, I believe that you are the best music leader for your children!

Music notes divide time in half, or quarters etc. and using movement avoids the need to understand fractions first. This is one way of introducing notation by working out how many 'beats&' each word takes, e.g.: Twin-kle, twin-kle, lit-tle star walk walk walk walk walk walk stride Bee bee bee bee bee bee worm cr cr cr cr cr cr m (cr=crotchet, m=minim) INTERCURRICULA LINKS: Movement - self-regulation, balance Numeracy - experiencing fractions, time Literacy - experiencing syllables Creativity - tools to &';write' own songs

This set of 8 Christmas terms are fun to use in teaching notation during the holiday season. This can be used in teaching notation by substituting these Christmas terms, or for dictation, by playing music and using notation to work out which rhythms were used. Useful in Dalcroze rhythmic movement training in early childhood, too.

Magical Musical Kingdom KS1 Music Lesson Planner (1 term)

Magical Musical Kingdom is a vibrant theme that uses well-known and lesser-known childhood songs to teach musical concepts with a royal flavour! Dance like a Dragon to semi-breves, walk like a King to crotchets and queen to Quavers, as we use physical movement to express the grounding rhythms of music! Musicaliti uses the concepts of the renowned educational approaches of Dalcroze, Kodaly and Montessori towards bringing true musicality to children. By providing a physical grounding in rhythm and developing inner hearing through singing, children are equipped with the S.P.A.C.E. that they need to develop into the fascinating and successful adults that they will become. S.P.A.C.E. describes the activities of each Musicaliti session including Singing, Playing, Acting, Creating and Exploring, as well as summarising additional benefits: Social: Group music introduces friends and builds relationships Physical: By moving in time, children develop physical co-ordination Academic: Music practice makes learning new things easy Creative: Musical experience helps the brain to solve problems Emotional: Music is a healthy form of self-expression Musicaliti Primary builds on children’s experiences of song in different and unexpected ways, developing their instincts in creating music, whilst building their experience of music concepts in a fun environment. Using easy-to-follow instructions, each activity in the 20-30 minute session clearly describes apparatus needed (with alternative suggestions), suggested sequence of songs and activities, rationale behind the program and benefits to children. Frances has presented early years music sessions in a variety of settings since 2006, after training as a secondary mathematics and science teacher. She is fascinated by research into the health, educational and developmental benefits of music. Not content with being involved with children’s music alone, she directs a local community choir, the Bolton Warblers.

Reindeer Hokey-Cokey: song with actions and extension ideas

(0)
This Christmas take on a traditional song brings a seasonal feel to any nursery setting or party around Christmas time! With ideas on suggested reindeer body parts, this familiar song develops spatial awareness as well as the physical experience of shape. In addition, musical concepts are physically experienced by moving in and out of the circle like crescendo or the building up of sound. In addition, it could be extended to different Christmas characters and using their most well-known traits. This song will also be available shortly as an e-book on iBooks - including links to an audio file to actually hear the song being sung and played (Come and Sing 2, by Frances Turnbull)!

Careful judgement should be made to consider which instruments should be left to children unsupervised, for example, instruments with small or fragile parts should be kept for occasions with adult supervision. Instruments can be grouped by type, and these are a mixture of skins (drums), props (egg shakers, scarves, parachute) and everyday items (cups and spoons).
