Summary Intended to help to make the most of the child's interest in music as early as possible, this book describes the ways in which music can be used and provides practical help in starting to play simple musical instruments with the child. The first part of the book explains how musical activities can help to stimulate skills in other areas such as language and communication, describes a range of basic instruments, and outlines the approach. It emphasizes the fact that prior knowledge of music is not needed, and also provides a choice of very accessible ways for parents to approach music themselves, to give them the confidence to make music with their child. The second part of the book describes in detail thirteen musical activities, with ideas for variations and further developments. Elaine Streeter's guide will help parents and others to learn how they can add to a child's fun - one of the most rewarding things anyone can do.
