Early learners need hands-on time in order to fully grasp the concepts being taught. My music room is built on a foundation of creativity through dance, play and composing. Early musicians get to experience hands-on activities with instruments, smartboard activities, and small props. Having beginner instruments such as these tone blocks opens more opportunity for a fun and engaging music lesson. We can echo short patterns on the blocks, create short melodic patterns and compose our own songs. I often use poems and books to enhance learning experiences and the tone blocks will work well to use alongside literature. The addition of tone blocks in music for early musicians will greatly enhance their creativity and composition skills with a hands-on experience. Thank you for helping me make music a fun and interactive learning environment for every child with diverse learning needs! #WeLoveTeachers
