Musical Beginnings DVD
Given recent structural and curriculum changes in early childhood education in Queensland, we are particularly keen to support the work of educators working with Prep-aged children. We believe that meaningful music experiences in the early childhood years are vital for the development of sound musical concepts in later years of school.
The DVD features examples of excellent practice in Queensland music classrooms and includes footage from a variety of educational sectors, teachers and settings. Featured schools include Forest Lake State Primary School, Clayfield College, St Columba’s Primary School and St Peter’s Lutheran College as they are known and respected within music networks for both the demonstrated expertise of the teaching staff with this age group, as well as the quality of the school’s music programmes.
