In compiling her series of CDs for young children, music specialist and educationist, Joyce O’Hara, pays particular attention to how they learn through listening to song and music.
Small children learn best when they hear only one voice singing the melody line. Voices in harmony may confuse them.
The basic accompaniment enhances the joy of learning, and is unobtrusive. When there is too much happening in the background it distracts the child.
Joyce has pitched the songs at a suitable level for the young singer. Singing outside the natural vocal range – too high or too low – imposes a serious strain upon the voice.
Small children identify more readily with the solo voice, and this helps them learn more easily.
Joyce’s spoken introduction to each song helps children in getting to know her as a person they can relate to. It is also a useful guide and assistance to the parent and teacher in working with the children.
The song words are provided in the CD notes.
