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

Flying Fairy: song with actions and extension ideas

This original song was created with an made-up story in mind. As part of a longer story (soon to be released!), this song tells the story about a Flying Fairy and a naughty elf. This sheet provides ideas on how to use scarves creatively to depict the entire part of this story, from scarves as fairy wings, scarves as elf clothes, scarves as broken instruments, and even scarves as gold! By acting out the character descriptions, children have the opportunity to develop empathy and expression as well as physical confidence! This song will also be available shortly in 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)!
