Overview

Maureen Harris has written an early childhood music program that is easily incorporated into the classroom routine. Written for the early childhood educator-experienced or trainee, musician or nonmusician_this book describes a music-enriched environment for teaching the whole child. Now educators can put research into practice and benefit from the wealth of knowledge and research acquired over the centuries on the power of music. With easy-to-follow lesson plans, sing-along CDs (sung in a suitable pitch for the young child), and supporting literature, educators can gain musical confidence as they explore research on child development, learn how to create a music-enriched environment and build musical confidence, see a curriculum time-frame, and follow lesson plans with ideas for further musical creativity and exploration. In addition, the multicultural section shows how to set up an early childhood music setting that maximizes the benefits of a variety of cultural values and practices. As you read this book you will begin to see music as a biological human need, an incredible vehicle for enhancing intelligence, and a means to connecting and uniting people around the world.

Editorial Reviews

Bernadette Berthelotte
What I liked most about this book was its comprehensiveness when speaking of early childhood education and the role that music plays in those early years. Harris brings creativity and knowledge together in a format that is easily utilized by early childhood educators in their own classrooms. Wonderful and imaginative musical ideas.
Sandi Curtis
A gem of a book. Harris draws upon a wealth of experience to provide readers with a useful combination of scholarly research, professional insight, and nuts-and-bolts classroom strategies.
Nancy W. Carle
Harris gives school administrators and classroom teachers a heads-up that music is far from simply trivial fun and games with preschoolers; rather, it's essential for their emotional and intellectual development. She also provides resources and practical techniques for teachers to enjoy music making with their students.
Jonathan G. Bayley
I highly recommend this exciting new resource! Music and the Young Mind is an excellent, well-researched, and clearly presented guide for educators and students wishing to become music teachers. This is an excellent title for an elementary music education text, where the focus is on cognitive engagement and the intellectual development of the child. I read with pleasure every page, which encouraged me to reflect on my own practice as a postsecondary music educator.

Music and the Young Mind is a must-read for all teachers (generalists and specialists) and music students wishing to become music teachers. This resource connects research to practice in a logical and meaningful way. It will also be a wonderful, comprehensive resource for college music education classes where the focus is on early childhood.

June 2010 Special Educatonal Needs Magazine
Harris provides a summary of the latest research in child development, music development, brain research and the biology of music making.... It is a truly fascinating and thought provoking book which is also very practical in terms of addressing how the teacher can meet a child's needs at developmentally appropriate levels.
David Buley
This welcome resource combines a thorough review of research with practical and wide-ranging strategies for bringing music to young children. Maureen Harris provides a healthy attention to the European musical canon together with the rich array of global musics as a means of helping children and their teachers discover joy and aesthetic engagement through authentic experiences of the processes of music making.
