Dr. Montessori’s cosmic view of education is to teach all branches of learning as part of an interwoven network. Therefore, music is not taught as a subject but as an integral part of the daily activities of the class.

When the child first enters the class, he joins in small groups singing nursery rhymes and well-known jingles. These he will have heard at home and will know therefore that he is able to take part as soon as he wishes. These activities help to form a bridge between his home environment and school, thus helping his orientation process and adaptation.  If you are homeschooling, you should introduce music related activities as part of the daily routine.  It works well to start the day’s activities with music as it relaxes the child and creates a good frame of mind for concentration in the activities that follow.  Using a playlist with carefully chosen children’s songs can be very useful to ensure you are always prepared.

Children love repetition therefore they enjoy singing the old favourites over and over again. To add to the interest and to give the children a wider choice, two or three new songs are introduced each week.

Children between the years 3 – 6 are in the sensorial stage of development. Activities are designed to use the potential of this stage to its optimum.

For the refinement of the auditory sense, the child manipulates small containers called the sound cylinders. These are paired in exact sounds which are audible when gently shaken, and can be graded from soft to loud.

For the refinement of the body movements, activities centred around walking to music, on the line, for balance, are introduced. These activities gradually extend to different rhythmic movements of the body to music with a definite tempo.

For the refinement of the auditory sense of pitch, the children are introduced to exercises with the bells, which prepare them for the music programme designed to teach notation.

Ongoing throughout are singing activities which emphasise rhythm when the children clap, tap, nod etc.

The children also use percussion instruments for enjoyment and the highlighting of rhythm.

The link between music and all cultural areas is formed by songs and dances of other countries, discussions about composers, their music, country of origin, place in history. The children learn the names of the instruments, their particular sounds and place in the orchestra, and are introduced to different schools of music including Baroque, Classical, Romantic etc.

All the different aspects of music are introduced separately but parallel – the activities are intermingled, and form a foundation for music, which will remain with the child throughout his life adding an important and enjoyable dimension to the child’s life.

 

Here are some Additional Ideas for Music Presentations

PITCH – HIGH AND LOW.

  • Listen to sounds around you that have different pitch.
  • Play high and low notes on a melodic instrument like a piano or xylophone.
  • Place items on high places such as a cylinder on a shelf, or low places such as a cylinder on the lowest shelf.
  • Make voices high and low e.g. Cat meowing, dog barking.
  • Make voices follow your hand from low to high like climbing the stairs.
  • Do many actions on different levels such as picking apples off the tree, collecting leaves off the ground, and walking tall like a giraffe, slithering like a snake.
  • Relate high, medium and low to places on the body e.g. Low-feet, middle-tummy, high- head. Stretch or jump high, lie down etc.
  • Ball games – bouncing high and low.
  • Pour water into glass bottles to different levels making high and low notes.

TEMPO – FAST AND SLOW.

  • Sing familiar songs at different tempos.
  • Move bodies or scarves to fast and slow music.
  • Use instruments and play at different tempos.
  • Play games or sing songs where you get faster and go slower. Show the child exactly how to hold the instrument correctly.
  • Imitate how fast or slow animals move e.g. Elephant and ant
  • Play music of different tempos and let children draw or paint in time to the music.

DYNAMICS – LOUD AND SOFT.

  • Discuss loud and soft sounds heard in the classroom. Places where you need to be quiet e.g. Library, church, and hospital.
  • Play instruments and sing using the different dynamics.
  • Listen to recordings of soft and loud music.

TEXTURE – FEW, MANY.

  • Children should be made aware of how many sounds are heard at the same time. Listen to pieces of music where it is easy to hear different voices and instruments.
  • Play instruments one at a time then add another and another.
  • One person can sing a song and slowly add more voices.
  • Listen to recordings of a choir.

TIMBRE – COLOUR OF SOUND.

A French term describing the quality of sound – clear, dull, cool, vibrant etc.

  • Listen to things that rattle, clink, clank or jiggle. (doorbells, horses clip clopping..)
  • Tap on metal, wood, glass.
  • Find recordings of a violin, cello or double bass; what a trumpet and flute sound like.

PULSE / BEAT.

This is the underlying ‘throb’ or ‘heart beat’ implied through a piece of music.

RHYTHM.

This is the timing of the music; the different patterns of sounds and silence or number of beats in every bar of music.

FORM.

Singing a verse, chorus then another verse is the structure or ‘form’ of a piece of music.

The practical life montessori lesson activities correspond to the psychical principle of “liberty of movement.” Much of this work is suitable for little children, who must “exercise themselves in order to learn to coordinate their movements.

For this it will be sufficient to prepare “a suitable environment,” just as we should place the branch of a tree in an aviary, and then to leave the children to follow their instincts of activity and imitation.

The surrounding objects should be proportioned to the size and strength of the child: light furniture that he can carry about; low dressers within reach of his arms; locks that he can easily manipulate; chests that run on castors; light doors that he can open and shut readily; clothes-pegs fixed on the walls at a height convenient for him; brushes his little hand can grasp; pieces of soap that can lie in the hollow of such a hand; basins so small that the child is strong enough to empty them; brooms with short, smooth, light handles; clothes he can easily put on and take off himself; these are surroundings which invite activity, and among which the child will gradually perfect his movements without fatigue, acquiring human grace and dexterity, just as the little kitten acquires its graceful movement and feline dexterity solely under the guidance of instinct.

The field thus opened to the free activity of the child will enable him to exercise himself and to form himself as a person. It is not movement for its own sake that he will derive from these exercises, but a powerful co-efficient in the complex formation of his personality. His social sentiments in the relations he forms with other free and active children, his collaborators in a kind of household designed to protect and aid their development; the sense of dignity acquired by the child who learns to satisfy himself in surroundings he himself preserves and dominates–these are the co-efficients of humanity which accompany “liberty of movement.”

From his consciousness of this development of his personality the child derives the impulse to persist in these tasks, the industry to perform them, the intelligent joy he shows in their completion. In such an environment he undoubtedly _works himself_ and fortifies his spiritual being, just as when his body is bathed in fresh air and his limbs move freely in the meadows, he works at the growth of his physical organism and strengthens it.

Between the ages of birth to four-and-a-half, children are in a sensitive period for refining their senses. Children at this age are capable of learning to discern hundreds of qualities of the things around them as well as absorb information about things, such as learning their names.

One can take advantage of this particular interest that is unique to this age group. Introducing interesting things with their names through the “Three Period Lesson” harnesses the power of association within the subconscious Continue reading »

Montessori HelperINTRODUCTION TO ART.

“Art belongs to the whole world and the barriers of nationality vanish before it”

This quotation by Goethe sums up the fact that art is a gift to all human beings. Art transcends time and place. It is through the study of art and artifacts of ancient civilization, indeed since the time of early cave man, that we can understand and visualise their way of life and their emotional thoughts and feelings.

When we study art we perceive it on many levels, not only looking or hearing but seeing and listening, and above all, feelings. Art is a powerful form of communication as it reaches beyond the particular cultural era of its creation – recreating emotional responses in people of diverse cultures and generations.

The creation of a piece of art encompasses psychological and physiological manifestations. The mind conceives an idea and the hand finds some outward form of expression for that idea.

This expression in outward form can find a great variety of outlets such as in the visual arts, music, poetry, all literary forms, inventions and everyday functional objects.

CREATIVITY IN RELATION TO THE Montessori METHOD.

To create means to take what is known and understood and to form from that something new. The child’s task is to form himself. From the experiences and opportunities he receives from his environment, he creates for himself his own faculties of will, intellect, co-ordination and ultimately his whole personality – the adult he will be. Thus the child’s creative potential goes far beyond the usually accepted very limited concept of art of children.

The role of the adult in the Montessori classroom is to respect the creative nature and creative powers of the child and to prepare an environment to bring this potentiality to its fullest.

Art is an outward expression of an inner development and the Montessori programme encompasses various preparatory exercises to guide this inner development and encourages the outward expression to take a variety of forms.

PREPARATION OF THE MIND.

For a child to be creative he needs information in all areas of learning. The cultural curriculum will augment the child’s mind with rich experiences and information of all branches of knowledge.

The adult’s responsibility is to help and guide the child in building his intellect. Through the cultural activities facts are presented in clear, interesting and exciting ways. The child’s mind is not confused with fantasy.

REFINEMENT OF THE SENSES.

 

To express outwardly an idea in the mind requires acute powers of observation. The child’s senses are refined by exploration, experience and repetition of the exercises and activities designed around the sensorial material.

The child is also able to perceive the nuances of the qualities of colour, texture, shape, and form essential for the successful execution of creative piece of art.

The Sensitive Period for the refinement of the senses is at its height between the ages of 2 ½ to 5 years. It is during this time that the various sensorial materials are introduced to the child. It thus makes optimum use of the special psychological powers, which make it possible for the child to abstract the essence of the materials more easily and more perfectly than would be the case at any other stage of development.

PREPARATION OF THE HAND.

The hand serves as an instrument of the mind and must be prepared in order that it can make visible in creative form what the mind wishes to express.

The Practical Life activities are designed to refine the child’s hand and eye co-ordination. There are motives for control built into the activities and the child practices and repeats until the hand obeys the mind e.g. pouring without spilling.

These activities are an indirect preparation for the hand in respect of art much in the same way as they are an indirect preparation for writing.

PREPARATION FOR ORDER.

A sequential orderly way of carrying out tasks and thus learning a skill gives the child a pattern for orderly thinking and functioning. The practical life activities have a logical beginning, middle and end. The child acquires a synthesis of order which leads to concentration and development of the will, both very important attributes for self – expression through art.

CREATIVITY IN THE Montessori CLASS.

The creative use of language is encouraged from very early on e.g. discussions, conversations, writing own stories etc. the children are expose to the beauty of language in the form of poetry, stories, picturesque vocabulary in all cultural areas. Thus the children are able to express themselves beautifully because of the exposure they have received in the environment.

When the children take a piece of sensorial material and re-arrange it in a new way, observing a pattern that is different, they are creating. They have already absorbed the essence of the materials concerned. Their experimentation adds further understanding and further application.

Music is an integral part of the Montessori curriculum. The children are encouraged to sing, move rhythmically, learn to play the bells to refine their sense of pitch. They also learn notation. This is all preparation for composition, which is the natural point of arrival. The children are encouraged and are able to create their own music.

In order for a child to come to know and appreciate visual art, it must be part of his everyday environment. With the aid of the power of the Absorbent Mind the child absorbs aesthetically from the environment. The home environment should contain art so that the child is exposed to the beauty and wonder of thought expressed through art from his earliest days. As the Absorbent Mind also absorbs attitudes, the attitudes of the persons in the child’s environment towards the beauties of art will become part of the subconscious of the child to develop later as part of his total personality.

The visual arts have a place in the Montessori curriculum as an important area of learning. Children’s work as well as that of adults should adorn homes, school and public places. It is important that the adults respect the art of the child – it is an expression of himself and to give a negative response would be to damage the child’s self – image.
