Introducing Music, the Montessori Way

Growing up in a musical family, I was fortunate enough to take music lessons my whole school career. My instruments of choice were the Soprano and Tenor Recorders. When I had taken my Soprano Recorder lessons and exams as far as I could, my fabulous high school music teacher, Mrs Myburgh, suggested I continue on to the Tenor Recorder, which I was fortunate enough to borrow from the school. I enjoyed every minute of it and loved losing myself in the music.

I have been playing with the idea of introducing the children to formal music lessons. I’ll be giving them the lessons myself.

To start our music lessons, we’ll be working on notes, rhythm and beat.

I have found these great resources and ideas that we’ll be making use of:
