Preschool Music Education

en nog wat meer

and some more

Gedachten en bevindingen over van alles en nog wat over Muziek met Jonge Kinderen, en wat er zoal nog meer bij zou kunnen komen kijken. Met name pedagogiek heeft mijn aandacht. 

These are thoughts, wonderings & ideas about preschool music education. Not a generalist view in terms of one size fits all: on the contrary. 

By means of practical experience & research we know a lot now about musical development and possible musical responses of young children to music and in music education. My interest is for the larger part what to do on the work floor. In short the pedagogics of preschool music education. The why and how.

I am also interested in the idea of musical art pedagogics in the early years: reclaiming music and music education for and with young children into the domain of art education. 

And non-discursive representational forms: actual music for young children can be the representation of the investigation. The accumulation of knowledge through and in action, made accessible in a certain shape that goes beyond written reports. Which then in turn benefits the pedagogy of preschool music education.

Thank you for your time reading my thoughts.
