О курсе


In this course, you will learn all about using music apps for iPad and Android with children aged 2-5. I will take you step-by-step through some fundamentals of the use of technology in the early years, explain the basic concepts of music and introduce you to the instrument families, and show you how to use all the features of 30+ of the best music apps for young children, according to reviews by users and the family-friendly-technology organisation 'Common Sense Media'. 

Many of the app lectures include a resource with lesson ideas that you can adapt to your own home or learning centre (available in the student Dropbox folder). After teaching you how to use the apps, I go through 8 portfolio projects you can do with the apps to show off your new skills and inspire kids to have a go. 

Music apps are a great complement physical instruments for exploring music, and you are sure to have a lot of fun exploring them with your preschooler!
