Montessori Music Curriculum Playlist

Music is an integral part of Montessori learning. There are many reasons why music is used in Montessori classrooms. First of all, it enhances a child’s brain development. In the first three years of a child’s life, music can be used to stimulate nerve connections between brain cells that play a huge role in cognitive development.

Also, music can give children non-verbal affective communication skills and also boosts students’ spatial skills. Children’s literacy can improve too with the use of music in the classroom. Humans process sound the same way we process speech, so music education can improve the way children process language.

Waterfront Academy incorporates music in their classrooms. Mrs. Melissa put together some wonderful videos to help continue cultivating your child’s music education at home.

There are listening games, which create a fun way to learn for your child.

Children enjoy the marching, running or skipping game. You can find more about that here.

Students can learn about rhythm by once again, incorporating it into a game. More here.

A good clapping game can also teach musical skills.

Finally, for more advanced students, reading pitches on a staff is a great way to take music education to the next level. There is also learning to read C Major Diatonic scale patterns—you can find more about that here.
