Sound Children

At the heart of the Sound Children approach are annA rydeR’s brilliant Music Cards: full of hints and music-making ideas for everyone to use. No musical experience is needed and session reparation is quick and easy. There are 30 cards with ideas for inside and outdoors, for groups of all sizes and for most sessions you just need a very few basic instruments. annA has worked in education for over 20 years and all these ideas have been tried and tested by her with young children.

Product Information

What's included

These music cards are ideal for you if you have no experience or very little experience of making music with young children but they are also very useful for people who are musicians or who have a lot of experience in leading music with children. This is because the ideas are a wide range of provocations, experiments and explorations which encompass not only music-making and listening – imaginative and technical – but also other seemingly unrelated ideas which will engage, excite and challenge your children. These music cards use an approach which is open-ended, flexible and non-learning-outcome driven. You won’t know what the outcome is until you try out the idea. Music ideas in this set of cards broaden out into other learning areas without being ‘boundaried’ by the subject of music. Children will naturally float from one activity into another without noticing a dividing line whereas we will think of music as a specific subject; and numeracy as another different subject. In reality there are connections between everything and everything which children easily, if not recognise, accept. For instance, a young child might be using an egg shaker one minute and then take it to the sandpit and bury it. A child might be putting a hat on and being a king one minute and the next they will put the egg shaker in the hat and shake it, dance about and then go and draw a picture with the egg shaker on the table next to them. annA rydeR’s Music Cards are 25 ideas which are set out NOT as ‘music-lessons-on-a-plate’ for a teacher who needs a quick fix for music sessions, but as imagination-provokers laid out in such a way as to encourage you to think about the ideas and how your children are learning and to inspire your own imagination and ideas. You will need to use these cards remembering that you’ll adapt them to your own particular children and setting. These are ideas for inside and outside, for small and large spaces, for short and long durations, for moving around or sitting still, for very particular musical activities right into the downright strange and unusual. Every one has been tried with children but you will always discover new learning outcomes. The cards come in a handy fabric pouch and they are detachable from one another so that you can share with your colleagues or let children examine them.
