Contents Here is a resource book of poems, songs, activities and games to help you explore music with young children. Starting with their own experiences, the book develops their understanding of louder and quieter, faster and slower, higher and lower, longer and shorter. Links are made with the English Curriculum through the spoken word and language development, and with sound and music in the Science Curriculum. The book is divided into five main areas corresponding to the five basic concepts of music : timbre (exploring sounds), volume (louder and quieter), tempo (faster and slower), pitch (higher and lower) and rhythm (longer and shorter).
