Did you know that there is a new way to lead your early years music sessions?
Did you know that you can teach them important musical concepts, and not just entertain them?
MLT COURSE 0 – 3 is an innovative course dedicated to music educators working in early year. MLT, developed by Prof. Edwin Gordon after over twenty years of research, gives you a practical and theoretical approach in the field of music education. MLT is based on the great intuition that human beings learn music in the same way they learn a language. Through the use of the voice and the body in movement, children are learning music according to their developmental stages. MLT course 0-3 is specific for the 0-3 age group, with particular attention to the various stages of learning 0-18 months and 18-36 months.
It is an innovative approach also for teachers! MLT music classes, for example, are based on songs in all the modes and tempos, sung mainly without words. Vocal exploration, patterns and improvisation are the most important elements of the music session, all happening in a non-verbal environment that allows children to learn through listening and free movement. In our sessions, teachers follow each child’s development. This is the reason why our activities are based on children’s natural responses to sounds and music proposed by the teacher. Children need to listen to music in the way they prefer to create a positive relationship with it. Also, to develop their musical skills, children need to move in relation to rhythm and music.
In this course, you will learn the principles of the Music Learning Theory and discover how to apply them in your early years music session. This workshop consists of a theoretical and practical part (10 hours), with the possibility of doing internships in MLT classes in London and in Italy.
