Music Appreciation and Creation

Your Child Making Beautiful Music

In the first few years of your child's life, you've been exposing him to music, singing songs, and dancing to music together. Now that he's approaching four years old, your child looks forward to music as a regular part of his life. He may sing a song as he plays with his toys or sing a clean-up song as he puts them away. If you were to ask him, he could probably tell you whether a song was fast or slow or if a person's voice was high or low. He may ask you to sing or play his favorite songs and clap or march along to the beat. He may even make up his own song! At this age, many children also enjoy playing simple instruments along with music, such as a whistle, kazoo, drum, or shaker.

Has your child achieved the following Music Appreciation and Creation milestones yet? If yes, check off all of the skill(s) he has already mastered to date.
