  5. Music Connects People and Carries a Message

“The true beauty of music is that it connects people. It carries a message, and we, the musicians, are the messengers.” ~ Roy Ayers
…And I believe that every educator can be a musician and can implement music and songs in their kinder, childcare or school settings and use it EVERY DAY!
Look at these enthusiastic and “musical” staff from Monash Vale ELC where in February this year I was running “Learning through Music” workshop. All staff were very tired after a long day working with children, but as soon as they heard “Bonkers Beat”, they all gone bonkers…

The night was full of dancing, singing, playing musical instruments and storytelling.
Everyone was having fun and danced their hearts out! Dancing with Bill was also fun and easy…
He knew how to move gracefully and truly enjoyed the “Waltz of the Week” with Bonkers and Galina.
It was a great session and all staff were AMAZING!
“…I love your work! Very impressive and I can’t wait to try this with children tomorrow! “ – Mursal Gudaz
Singing and dancing is not only good for children…
Making music helps all educators to connect and bond, release emotions and express themselves, to buid up confidence and have fun, but first of all to enrich their own lives and enjoy EVERY DAY!
