MAKING MUSIC WITH YOUNG CHILD WITH SPECIAL NEEDS
A GUIDE FOR PARENTS
This book is designed to help to make the most of the child's interest in music, as early as possible, by describing ways in which music can be used and providing practical help in starting to play simple musical instruments with the child. The first part of the book provides the background, explaining how musical activities can help to stimulate skills in other areas such as language and communication, describing a range of basic instruments, and outlining 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, 13 musical activities, with ideas for variations and further developments.
