ECE 111 - Music and Movement in Early Childhood


This course will introduce students to music making and music play within early childhood education. Students will learn the importance of music education during early childhood and how music education is linked to literacy and comprehension. This course will cover basic melody composition, referencing folk songs and other songs we grew up singing. Songs will be accompanied by movement games including marching, skipping, tip-toes, and skating. Along with the lecture portion of this class, students will participate in actual early childhood music classes, working with children ages birth to 5 years. This course will benefit early childhood professionals working with young children, as well as parents of young children.
NOTE: Students may clock hours of formal child care training and education toward completion of the CDA renewal of CDA, the Michigan Department of Education Paraprofessional requirements and child care licensing requirements for Michigan.
