Chapter 2 Text: Music and Your Child: A Guide For Parents and Caregivers Children Teach Themselves through Play  Children can develop basic music competence (singing in tune and physically  keeping beat) most easily through the birth­to­preschool years.  This is the time when they develop themselves and learn about their world  through the magical process of play.  Several important characteristics that qualify an activity as “play:” o The activity is freely chosen. o The child controls its flows and duration. o It is mostly rewarding or done for its own sake. o The activity is relatively free of externally imposed rules (in contrast to  games). o It needs to be somewhat challenging in order to keep interest, but not so  hard to cause frustration. o It thrives best when attempted in a relaxed setting.  o Most importantly, it needs to be fun. Process versus Product  The process or experience of play is the most important factor.  First, pride in the product does not last long. o The drawing masterpiece so intensely worked and reworked yesterday  quickly becomes today’s lunch mat.  Second, the main goal of play, simply having fun, does not require the presence  of a product in the end. Characteristics of Music­Play  In music play, the child teaches his or herself about the music of the culture by  experimenting information he or she has gathered from his or her music  environment. o His or her music play may take place at the same time with motor or forms of play. Informal Instruction  A music activity is informal when it takes place in an environment where no  expectations for achievement are placed upon the child.  After a great deal of experience making and listening to music without any formal demands put upon them, children are ready to understand high/low, loud/soft,  singing in tune, and keeping an accurate beat. Instrument­play Time  Most children eagerly anticipate the instrument­play period at the end of class.  For the first thirty minutes of class, the child has been actively achieving new  information about music.  Instrument play allows him or her to process the new information she or he has  understood during class.
